Keep Your Word

You earn respect when you keep your word both in business and in your personal life.  If you don’t keep your word you may become the topic of gossip and which is never positive.  A few tips about keeping your word:

  • Keep track of your major commitments
  • Review commitments and recalibrate expectations if circumstances change
  • Follow up with those to whom you gave your word
  • Confirm that you have kept your word with interested parties

There are occasions from time to time when you have done all possible and you are unable to keep your word.  In these rare circumstances you should be proactive with your communication.  Seek out the impacted parties and give a thorough accurate and realistic analysis of the situation. Then apologize for the shortcoming.
