Returning to a life from ZOOM has been quite challenging for many people. In fact, I’m spending a lot of time working with business owners on the importance of punctuality. Time is the one thing in life that you can never get back but can be the one thing you are remembered for if you are late. Being punctual has so many benefits.
Punctuality shows you are organised;
You are a dependable partner;
You care about your company’s reputation;
Punctuality reflects professionalism and attention to detail;
And that you respect the time of others.
Good business is about connection.
Connecting with your team.
Connecting with your customers.
Connecting with yourself.
