What a great group of ideas. I really appreciated your thoughts- and the specific comments you made to support your point. I particularly like what you said about seeing the situation through their eyes. It is so easy to ignore people, hurt their feelings, but not even notice what you did.
I worked for years at walking with awareness. That meant that if I was walking around the office, I would consciously try to not think about my work. But instead to wbe aware of people greeting me or trying to catch my eye. I tried to think about my work at my desk- and be aware of people when I was around the office. Now that it is a habit, I rarely get into trouble for ignoring people.
