Have you helped your social media connections out today? This is an easy one, and could make a difference to people who you’ve not met yet.
Do you have a name which can be pronounced in a number of ways?
LinkedIn now has a feature which lets you record how you’d like your name pronounced, and which then sits as part of your profile. This could be a really helpful feature, and one that could help you avoid an awkward moment when you have to correct someone when you meet for the first time – in the flesh, or virtually.
Head to your profile – on a mobile device (for now) – hit the pencil mark and then you’ll see the option to add an audio recording of how you say your name.
I always thought that I had a name that anyone would get right all the time, so I wasn’t going to bother. But, one of my Italian colleagues today pointed out that in Italy, or Spain, they’d likely lose the h, making me become Keet.
Worth taking a moment to consider how you can make a small change to help others out.
