To build a good reputation, work hard, be conscientious, considerate and meet all of your deadlines.
“Those are all great things and what you should be striving to do,” says former Green Beret Sergeant Major (retired) Karl Erickson. “But on the downside, they all take time to prove to your co-workers and customers.”
Erickson says he believes there is one thing you can do that screams, “This is a person I want to work with” to any of the hundreds of people you come in contact with on a daily or weekly basis. It is a tactic many great leaders employ. It’s simple, it’s free and it is effective: Be on time.
