It’s 2pm on a Thursday afternoon. I’ve been out all morning and discover urgent requests from two different customers as soon as I’m back at my desk. I already have a full plate for the afternoon and immediately realize I’m not going to be able to help both customers. I have to pick one over the other. Who do I pick?
The one who always says “Thanks!” It’s a no-brainer.
Manners and respect will never go out of style. And they absolutely give you a one-up over those lacking… in business and in life.
