Un decálogo k encontre en otro blog…

Esto lo vi en otro blog y como su autoría es anónima, no veo la razón por que no compartirlo aquí también…

1. HABLA CON LAS PERSONAS. Nada hay tan agradable y animador como una palabra de saludo cordial. Particularmente hoy necesitamos de gestos amables.
2. SONRÍE A LAS PERSONAS. Recuerda que para mover la cabeza ponemos en acción 72 músculos y que para sonreír nos basta con movilizar 14.
3. LLAMA A LAS PERSONAS POR SU NOMBRE. Para casi todos, la música más suave es oír su nombre.
4. SÉ AMISTOSO Y SERVICIAL… si quieres tener amigos.
5. SÉ CORDIAL. Lo que hagas, hazlo con gusto.
6. INTERÉSATE SINCERAMENTE POR LOS DEMÁS. Recuerda que sabes lo que sabes, pero no sabes lo que otros saben.
7. SÉ GENEROSO EN ELOGIAR Y CAUTELOSO EN CRITICAR
8. APRENDE A CAPTAR LOS SENTIMIENTOS DE LOS DEMÁS. Hay tres perspectivas: la tuya, la del otro y la del que sólo ve lo suyo con demasiada certeza.
9. PREOCÚPATE DE LA OPINIÓN DE LOS DEMÁS
10. PROCURA APORTAR LO BUENO QUE TIENES

añadido el 7 de agosto de 2011 –> una pena k muchos no sigan este decálogo. con ser bocón o bocona no se resuelve nada, lo que provocas que que te tenga miedo y no comenten nada delante de tí
