Starting next week I will have a junior to enable for our position. This made me think of which basic habits I have or use that help me in my daily business.
I figured I have two "patterns" I rely on most.
1. Be open.
As simple that may sound it actually is an active task to view every new situation or person unbiased. To not think "they have no background for this problem, this suggestion is stupid" or to let personal relationships cloud professional statements.
2. Have a reasoning / explanation.
It doesnt matter if you say you didn't do something, as long as you have a valid reason for it. The same is the other way around, you would maybe want to explain why you did something. This is not (always) meant in a precautious way, but it doesn't hurt in those kind of situations as well!
What "not basic basics" do you utilize to ace your daily business?
