Be An Early Bird!

Be the Early Bird!

Great leaders are great role models.  People watch EVERYTHING you do ….

they hear everything you say.  They notice everything.

Be the one to SET THE STANDARD for others to follow.

It may seem like a small thing, but running late, even by just a couple of minutes sets a standard that others observe and follow.  Being punctual shows respect for others …. it shows you care, it tells “them” they’re important.

Try this beginning today …. Arrive a few minutes early for EVERY meeting on your calendar, perhaps even 10 minutes early, and:

  1. Use that time to engage in dialogue with your colleagues and teammates

  2. Review the agenda

  3. Review your notes from the last meeting

  4. Give your material a final review

  5. Make notes of important questions to ask

Be a role model …. set the standard for others.

Show others YOU care and you respect their time … Always arrive for meetings (and phone calls) ON TIME or ahead of time.
