Scott Ginsberg aka That Guy with the Name Tag of www.hellomynameisscott.com is the world’s foremost expert on nametags. He has worn one for 2200 days straight, and even has a nametag tattooed on his chest (true story). Today he pontificates on a few excuses people give for not wearing a nametag. I’m definately guilty of at least one of them:
nametags are not about you.
Nametags are about everyone in the world BUT you.
Nametags are about making someone else feel comfortable; maybe because they’re shy, or maybe because they’re bad with names.
And yet, so many people still complain about wearing them:
“I feel silly wearing this thing.”
“My nametag doesn’t match my outfit.”
“Everybody at this meeting knows me already.”
That may be true, but the problem with these (common) objections to wearing a nametag is this: they’re all about you.
If you’re attending a meeting or event – especially if you’re an existing member – one of your duties is to make guests and newbies feel comfortable. So whether you’re extroverted or shy; friendly or caustic; aloof or gregarious, at least some part of that goal can be easily accomplished by one simple act: wear your nametag!
Why don’t you wear a nametag?
