At Church last Sunday there was an interesting piece about names.
Helen, the Vicar, said many people go to church for years and see the same faces in the congregation every week and yet do not always know the names of those people.
We were invited to introduce ourselves to someone we did not know and tell that person our name.
At work in large organisations many people see the same faces every day and maybe do not know names, so perhaps we should introduce this idea in our everyday work in big organisations.
Most managers should surely know the names of the staff who work for them at the very minimum.
If you do not know someone's name why not ask them? It might just lead you to getting to know that person a little better and what makes them tick.
