But seriously. That’s the old saying. Right?
Silence is golden.
And in some situations, I have to 100% agree. But there are other situations when silence can make you look very unprofessional.
Now, when I say silence makes you look unprofessional, here’s what I mean.
When people connect with you…let’s say by email, voicemail, text, etc., there’s always time available for you to respond. And that’s being a true professional.
I challenge you to be that person if you’re not already.
There are so many people, in the workforce, not necessarily professionals, who don’t follow through. And they don’t return messages left for them. And it could be for a myriad of reasons.
They could have health issues. Or something going on in the family. And there could be an urgency of the day. Or maybe there’s just a conflict situation and they don’t wanna address it.
But it could also be because they’re just “too busy.”
Whatever the reason…it’s so unprofessional.
Don’t be that guy or gal.
So, here’s my advice.
And you can skip it if you’re already on top of your communication skills. But set aside 2 to 3 times a day, and make it habit, to respond to anyone who’s contacted you.
Even if it’s just to say “No thank you” or “Could we come back to this later?” or “How ‘bout we schedule another time?” That response is being a professional.
And, by the way, I have a system to help you with communication and tons and tons more. It’s a business building, game-changing system. But it’s only for the serious entrepreneurs who wanna be the CEO and not the grunt on the go.
If that sounds like you, then you’re really, really ready for the RondaReady System.
