in personPosted: January 18, 2012
One of the things about my company is that the teams are global and distributed. There are a lot of telephone meetings and many of the people I work with I have never met.
I did, however, have the opportunity to meet my counterpart in the other organization this past week. The one who I once mentioned, you may recall, bites the heads off of nails for breakfast. I will say that she did not look anything like what I imagined. She is tall, slender, fit (as in zero body fat fit), with long black hair. But regardless of appearance, it was good to meet her in person.
Having met, I’m sure our relationship will remain pretty much the same, and I’m still convinced that she bites the heads off of nails for breakfast. Yet I have to say that having had the chance to sit down and talk with her in person will make it just a little easier and a little more comfortable to interact with her on a day-to-day basis.
That’s a good thing.
