1. Stay on schedule
Being on time for appointments and meetings. Time management not only shows professionalism, it also shows others that you are respectful of their time. Also, one of the best ways to retain clients is by staying on schedule. If you miss the appoints, there might not be a next one waiting for you.
2. Be mindful of what you say.
Always be mindful of what you say and how you say it. With any form of communication, verbal or written, it is extremely important for you to deliver it in a way where people can accept it. Be mindful of your audience and make sure each word you say has value and relevance.
3. No phones, please!
Turn your phone off at all times during meetings. One of the most distracting things in meetings is having someone’s phone go off. You would lose track of your thoughts and disturbs others from their train of thoughts as well. Don’t be that person that everyone glares at in a meeting.
4. Get rid of the dead-fish hand shake!
Don’t be shy when it comes to shaking hands! There is nothing worse than a weak handshake when you first introduce yourself to your employer or coworkers. Having a firm handshake is the first step in showing your confidence and making yourself stand out among the crowd.
