It’s ironic how many people are based on stereotypes to form an impression around a person.
And when they do they practically choose
a communication etiquette based on this assumption.
Appearance is just the tip of an iceberg called character.
Is it that impossible to follow?
I remember myself back in 2008
leading a TV Series production
as a co-producer and a screenwriter
with artists and people of the industry
talking to me using a plural tense
and trying to befriend me to either get
a role or a position within the production.
I then got more attached with my
efforts as an artist and people
started addressing me
with my first name,
asking if we could hang out
for a beer.
Varying roles followed ranging from
single Events Planning to
becoming the National Director on
an International Festival and then
getting involved with a World Final of that
tournament in Berlin.
During that time some people started using the
term Mr to address me.
Now I am a developing
Brands & Artist Liaison Manager
based in Manchester,
whilst I never stopped
being a Singer/Songwriter.
And that’s just HALF of my life’s story.
It’s funny that people tend to use different manners
based on a persons work identity
instead of trying to communicate with the
man behind the perception.
Let’s just be true to each other.
You reading this:
Start by being polite to the waitress
serving that coffee
who’s a student now and might become
your future manager.
Respect your partners
and remember that partnership
is a two-way street.
Treat people the same way
you would like THEM to treat YOU.
Good givers are ALWAYS great getters.
