I have a friend who is active in a CrossFit club. He showed me their Facebook group, and there was a post reminding everyone to be open and welcoming to new members. I asked ‘Does it work in real life too?’
‘Yes, definitely, we all say hello and introduce ourselves to all new people. A handshake, and sharing a sentence or two about who you are and how you started with Cross fit.’ To know people’s name is important, it makes people join and get active.
Do you make people feel welcome where you work or in your volunteer organisation?
