Four Credibility Building Habits
January 13, 2022
I have a habit of keeping a digital record of articles, blogs, and any interesting content that I believe provides some perspective that I can adopt as good practices. So I was reviewing my digital reference folder to get some inspiration for any idea to share today when I came across this 2019 article published in Forbes. The article title reads Four Ways To Increase Your Credibility And Referability — Fast.
If you have five minutes to spare, click on the article link I have given above and take a read.
The title is self-explanatory and details the four essentials for anyone to improve their personal credibility and referability. I retained a copy of this article because of the interesting quotes the author Shannon Miller has used to support the argument for the four things people must take care of to enhance their credibility. I am reproducing below the headline points and the quotes as a quick summary of the article.
Show Up On Time: You cannot respect someone but disrespect their time-Mokokoma Mokhonoana.
Do What You Say: “A promise is a cloud. Fulfillment is rain.” — Proverb.
Finish What You Start: “Commitment is an act, not a word.” — Jean-Paul Sartre
Say Please And Thank You: “Showing gratitude is a free way to make people feel their value has gone up, and they feel completely understood.”- Dan Sullivan
