Always Say Good Morning

Posted May 29, 2012 by Marcy Twete in On the Ladder

Here at Career Girl Network, we scour the internet looking for the best advice to pass along to you. I recently found the Australian website Leading Company, dedicated to leaders who are changing the game. And on this Monday morning, I bring you one of their best pieces of advice, one we should all take to heart – “Power Play: Always Say Good Morning.” In it, entrepreneur Rose Herceg says,

Power Players always say good morning. The work can wait for five minutes to allow for a “Good morning, how are you?” Power Players say it at every opportunity. In the elevator to strangers or at the café when ordering a double espresso.

Whether it’s Monday morning or Friday afternoon, take the time to say hello to your colleagues at work. Your smile and nod and a quick “How are you?” will go a long way to creating camaraderie at work.
