No matter where we work, the relationships we forge with others are our own.
Even if legal or ethical terms constrain how we interact with people initially, the personal impressions with which we’ve left them will never expire.
Did we show people respect? Were we sensitive to how we used their time? Were we genuine and sincere?
Did we accurately assess what we could and couldn’t do and communicate that honestly? Were we competent?
Managing our reputation is one reason to be very careful choosing where we work and how we partner.
Be careful to find employers and partners that share your relationship ideals or you may find yourself in sticky situations.
We ARE judged by the company we keep!
