A leadership speaker will tell you that there is nothing that can make you appear to be a disorganized individual as being late to work. Often because of this, people will make conclusions about you such as that you are careless, self-centered and other negative traits. Management will most likely find you an unreliable individual to work with. On the flip side, when you develop a culture of respecting time, you will be portrayed as a responsible employee who can be counted on. It shows that as a person, you can manage yourself accordingly.
Know what to do and do it at the right time. Sometimes doing the right thing at the wrong time is simply wrong. Some people give hugs instead of a simple handshake, or getting bored in a meeting and checking your phone and other behaviors that could be deemed inappropriate. This lack of etiquette will make it seem like you were never taught good manners and how to behave. It becomes a self-mockery of who you are and where you come from.
However, following etiquette is a simple thing that takes little effort to achieve. Etiquette doesn’t mean being overly formal. It’s more about being polite and showing respect, and often puts the interests of others before you. Leadership speakers suggest that if you do this often, the people that enjoy being around you will improve, as well.
