The employee morale dance

  • Comments 8

I've been reading up a lot on strategies to motivate employees and increase morale, and I ran across this article, which has the following in it:

1. Watch how you're standing. Men enjoy standing side by side when speaking to one another. Women enjoy facing each other while talking to one another. Women: When approaching a man, slowly position your torso at an angle to his torso to make him comfortable. Gentlemen, to make a woman comfortable, slowly move your torso so you're standing face to face with her to make her comfortable.

I just can't help but wonder what happens if you have a man and a woman who have both read this advice who need to talk to each other?

  • Hah! It's also oddly inappropriate in a 'writer's love this' sorta way. Try as I might, my vigilant editor would never let something like, "slowly position your torso at an angle to his torso to make him comfortable" into a build. Imagine how that localizes!

  • Does the word "Dancing" come to mind. ;-)

  • "I just can't help but wonder what happens if you have a man and a woman who have both read this advice who need to talk to each other?"

    You've just invented dancing.

  • "Take a step forward, now take a step back. Take a step forward, now take a step back. And now we're doing the cha-cha"

  • Keith++ for the Real Genius reference. :)

  • It's our inherent knowledge of the same principal taught in firearms safety...

    Never point that thing at something you're not willing to destroy.

  • Turning your torso ensures NOTHING is pointing her way.....

  • "I just can't help but wonder what happens if you have a man and a woman who have both read this advice who need to talk to each other?"

    That's why the came up with square dancing...
