My latest Memphis Daily News column is out, “Build Your Credibility, Be On Time”
The importance of being on time is often underestimated in business. It is one of the easiest ways to build credibility and conversely, one of the fastest ways to lose it. Whether you are just starting your career or are a seasoned professional, this is an important point for everyone.
Have you ever had a one-on-one meeting with your boss where the boss showed up late, really late? As the employee, what message does this give you? It can often leave you feeling like a lower priority. It appears the boss has much more important things to do. You may feel underappreciated and demotivated.
