When we speak of Christmas and New Year’s Eve we generally think of happy times, as well as of those who become more forgiving and giving too. It’s curious why this isn’t the norm all year round. As a business professional, being a better person is critical for attracting the right attention and clientele. Your personal brand depends upon it; you never know who may be watching – the next hiring manager or prospective client you were trying to reach.
Recently I’ve discovered that peaceful perception of behavior during the holidays isn’t necessarily true to form. Patience is short and some display dishonorable behavior.
Yesterday while in a grocery store, after being told where the line begins, a woman actually took the groceries in her hand and threw them at the clerk, storming out. It was shocking behavior.
While pressure may be felt waiting in line, a better strategy is to bring something to keep your attention so that waiting isn’t difficult. For example, I use my phone to connect with others on social media while in line. Instead of feeling I lost time waiting, I walk away knowing I made good use of my time.
May patientce and the Smooth Sale! be yours this holiday.
