In today’s world, everyone wants to go ahead and learn something new, and improve themselves but they don’t know how to improve,
So today, I will tell you 7 habits of businessmen that if you practice in your life, then you will go ahead and see improvement in yourself.
Here are seven habits of business people who know how to get the most out of the vendors they delegate or outsource to:
1. Make efforts:
They present their best selves to the public.
Your moods change but your vendors, customers, and colleagues don’t care.
Make a conscious effort to be your most positive, enthusiastic, helpful self, especially when that’s not how you feel.
If you need to vent, do it in private.
2. Give priority to your customers:
They answer phone calls promptly.
Few things annoy people more than not having their phone calls returned.
Get back to people within two hours.
If you can’t, have your voice mail guide them to others who can help.
If you’re really uncomfortable with certain people and don’t want to talk with them on the phone, answer their queries through fax or e-mail.
Or call when you know they won’t be there and leave a message on their voicemail.
3. Try to make bonds with your employees:
They call people by their names and ask questions about their lives.
Take the time to learn and use everyone’s name, especially secretaries.
Most people don’t. You don’t have to glad-hand everyone, but if you see a child’s picture on someone’s desk, they’d probably appreciate your asking, ”How old is your daughter?”
Establishing some common bond makes the other person more receptive to working with you.
4. Be kind:
They meet people halfway.
Sometimes we’re right and the other person is wrong, but many people I observe seem to enjoy going out of their way to rub this fact in the other person’s face.
Give instructions, corrections, and criticisms without making the other person feel stupid or ignorant, such as, “That’s a good idea, but given the process variables, here’s another approach we should also consider.”
5. Make a habit to listen:
They listen carefully before speaking.
A sure sign you are not listening to the other person is that you can’t wait to say what you want to say.
As soon as the other person pauses, you jump in and start talking.
Even if you think you know how the story ends, listen to the other person.
This person’s knowledge and grasp of the situation may surprise you. If not, listening shows you considered his or her opinion and didn’t just steamroll over the thought.
6. Maintain eye contact:
This is something that you are learning from school and now you must know how important it is, some things are useful to you throughout your life, that is why you should always keep learning.
They maintain eye contact. When you’re talking with someone, look him or her in the eye at points in the conversation.
If you’re explaining something while typing on a keyboard, take your eyes away from the screen now and then to look and talk directly at the other person.
7. Accept your mistakes:
They are not afraid to admit when they are wrong.
People are anxious that other people will think they are ineffectual if they admit to being wrong. The opposite is true.
Andrew Lanyi, a stock market expert, in a personal interview explains, “The more you are willing to admit that you are not a guru, the more credibility you gain”
No one knows everything, and everybody knows people make errors.
If you refuse to admit your mistakes or pretend to know everything, people won’t trust you when you are right and do know the answer.
Although they will never admit it, vendors have favorite and least favorite clients.
The rating you get as a client depends, in large part, on how well you treat the vendor as a business colleague and a human being.
Despite claims that “every client is important,” favorite clients often get preferential treatment; unpopular clients frequently go to the bottom of the priority list.
So it was a small thing that you must bring into your life, I explained to you with an example, hope you feel good and you have learned something new,
Thank you for your great time.
