Granted, not everyone wants to work in a corporate environment. But earning a living always means being able to present yourself with a certain level of professionalism. Confusing skill-level with professionalism has been the downfall of many a highly trained individual, whom no one will hire.
It could be an attorney who disregards your communications; a plumber who leaves behind a mess; or a customer service associate who makes you wait…and wait! Sure these people can do the job, but would you do business with them, again? Probably not. Why? Because we not only want someone who is capable of doing the job but who shows us respect and a degree of honor.
We all want it – even the attorney, plumber, and customer service rep. What we all need is a little “put-yourself-in-my-place” or “Do unto others…” mindset, which we all know, is seriously lacking today.
Whether climbing the corporate ladder or excelling within your industry, consider these three tips when interfacing with others in business.
Adding these tidbits to your business ‘tool box’ should get referrals and repeat business for you, which translates into increase and reward. Need help polishing your business professionalism?
