If you care how you talk and how you behave with your partners and colleagues, you can do your job more competently
Undoubtedly, the business label or business label has complicated elements and therefore, we must know how, where and when we behave in a certain way.
A few days ago I was in the business center of a well-known hotel in Mexico City, when a person came to use one of the computers available for visitors, it was quite uncomfortable and untimely to try to work with James Blunt’s song You are beautiful at the highest volume capacity that my roommate’s computer had, which, while not excessively high, was enough to lose concentration and work more slowly.
Minutes later, that person began to see some funny videos, whose laughter caused me, with extreme discretion, to excuse me to retire. Luckily when I came back, the person was no longer there. And it was when doing an introspection, I decided to write a little about some issues that besides considering basic, they are indispensable to be able to have a friendly and warm work environment.
A business center is often the place where the business activity of one or several people takes place and where they spend their time doing some of their scheduled activities, it is not the place to try to interact with someone who, obviously, is working .
Well says the prominent economist Thomas Sowell author of the book Basic Economics , that “the first lesson in economics is scarcity“, if you ask me what are the business label would say that one of the first is the consideration. Some important aspects to consider are:
1. Consideration is an indispensable requirement
Everything is based on having some appreciation and attention for what the other person is doing. Consideration leads us to create more empathy with people and, therefore, to make our environment more friendly and enjoyable.
2. Technology does not exclude education or at least should not exclude it
If it is true that reproducing music or videos in a work area is unpleasant, it is also that you place your hearing aids all the time and ignore that you live in a society in which you should integrate and have participation. The interaction with your co-workers is important and I would say that priority, do not forget that at certain times, they will be the only ones that can take you out of unexpected events and, if you do not include them on a day-to-day basis, I do not know why they would have to support you in hard momment.
3. The importance of punctuality in your appointments and deliveries
Have you worked with someone who is late for appointments and does not notify you? Have you been given a project to approve three weeks later and that causes you even more delays? Could you work with someone you already paid for in advance? Does it leave you waiting without giving you a deadline? What do you say about disorganized people who have unforeseen events and you end up with great setbacks because of their cause? If your answer is yes, you will know that they are people who are hired once. and that situation is not repeated.
Any mishap, unforeseen, or sudden unexpected event, should and should be notified so as not to be pigeonholed in informality and lack of professionalism. By the way, it is terrible to work with someone fickle, unstable and emotional; here must enter the premise that business comes first.
4. Your business vocabulary projects your crib
While I was printing information to study, I heard how two people from the restaurant industry with branches in Monterrey and Guadalajara talked about the “wey” that was on the way to the hotel for the signature of the company and the “bato” that made the investment and until here I will arrive because the “cool” of the conversation left me astonished and not because I heard a conversation like that inside the business room, but because I, in particular, lost all credibility in them because of their way of expressing themselves.
Maybe if they had the opportunity to record themselves, and then listen to them, they would realize the garrafal error that they are committing for not stopping their exuberantly informal lexicon.
5. The cell phone ringtone
It became clear to me at that moment, you can see yourself as an entrepreneur, young and with resources, but definitely if the management of your person, your vocabulary, your presence and everything else that you project does not go according to one of the most recent and expensive models of your mobile, it is difficult for you to get to the position you aspire to. Please! The tones of adolescents or children should be used by adolescents or children, but not by a serious and professional person who is trying to close a business and who, apparently his vision, wants to expand and the only thing that happens is a setback in his behaviors
6. The common areas in stationery, storage and dining room
If you take something from the stationery area, nothing will cost you leave the things as you found them, so you will save time not only you, but also your colleagues, the same happens in the store. Speaking specifically about the dining room, if you see an apple on the table and you did not take it, you have no right to take it, since someone else took the trouble to take it to the table, if you open the refrigerator and you find an appetizing cake, no cut it, since you have not been invited and show your education because you can cause a misunderstanding and frictions that end up in something bigger more than omdimas.
As you have read, they are not complicated aspects of etiquette, but rather of common sense and, above all, of consideration for your work team or for the people with whom you share a specific area to work. If you take care of these points you will be able to carry out your work competently and with quality.
