Our upbringing helps us navigate through different situations that life gives us. Almost instinctively we know how to react when presented with various scenarios in our life. Or do we? Anyone involved with planning a meeting would tell you that upon entering the meeting room the usual protocol is to be introduced to anyone that you don’t know, you approach them shake their hand and engage in small talk.
But what would you do if, upon entering the meeting room, the person you were being introduced to gave you a big kiss instead of shaking your hand? Would you return the gesture? Or, if you’re like me, would you turn bright red and be at a loss for words.
A Unique Way of Communicating in a Planning Meeting
The video below, at first, everything looks like a normal planning meeting about to get underway. But as you’ll see, once the attendees arrive, they have a very unique way of greeting each other. While, at first, you might think this is an organization that you want to apply with, it really is showing us that spreading germs can be done more through a handshake than from an actual kiss. Let’s just say that this video by science world has certainly got their point across. So, the next time someone comes up to you before your meeting starts and kisses you instead of shaking your hand, you’ll know that they may just have the common cold. But before you return the favor, maybe make sure the person on the receiving end has seen this video first.
