Background on Chat: First Meeting People Skills

When you are in new situations and must have new interactions, how do you handle that first meeting with others? Some people immediately say that it’s no problem. They feel that meeting new people or interacting with people in a new setting is no different than interacting with those they know. Others find new interactions very stressful. And still others deny how they feel and push in without any thought or consideration. They often make a very bad first impression.

The good news is that a first meeting doesn’t have to be stressful. It also doesn’t have to be a complete failure. Please join us this Sunday Feb. 7, 2021 in global #PeopleSkillsChat on Twitter at 10am EST to explore first meeting people skills. We can easily handle a first meeting and new settings and situations in our work and personal life when we have the people skills to do it. Use hashtag #PeopleSkillsChat on Twitter to participate this Sunday.

First Meeting People Skills

As we explore this topic in the upcoming People Skills global Twitter chat, here are some questions to get us thinking in advance. Actual questions will post live during the chat on Sunday 10amET.

  • Picture yourself in a new situation? What is it and how do you feel?
  • Why are new situations and interactions challenging?
  • How can your passionate beliefs and opinions help or hinder your first meeting with others?
  • What do you do when someone new arrives in a group you already belong to?
  • When we think of social media interactions with those you are just meeting, what are some key steps to follow?
  • What people skills steps do you use when you are new to a situation? Why do you choose those behaviors?
  • Imagine you are in a chat and someone new enters and starts criticizing the chat. How do you see them? Impressions?
  • What do assumptions do to first meetings and new interactions? Why?
  • What aspects of emotional intelligence are valuable, perhaps essential, for good first meetings and impressions?
  • OPINION: Is it a weakness to say “I’m new here.” Why/why not? What would you add, anything?
  • When are new interactions easiest? Why?
  • How can we overcome fears of new interactions and first meetings?
  • How do cultural norms and values affect new interactions? Examples?
  • Where/when have you had very successful first meetings? Why did it go well?
  • How does personality type affect first meetings, if at all?
