A simple way to make people feel valued

Just ask them to talk about themselves and listen.

That’s it. No secret, here. Show them that you are interested in knowing them better, ask about their professional careers, about their hobbies, about what kind of book they like to read or about which TV series they recommend.

And it works on “remote environments”, too. If you schedule 15 minutes calls with each of your coworkers and simply ask them to talk a little bit about themselves, most of them will be quite happy with that and - what amazes me most - they’ll even like you more, even if you don’t talk much about yourself.

People just want to be heard. So hear them. It’s so nice.
