Business travel can be stressful in most of the folks. It is because most people are away from their family and loved ones. Not to mention that the business trip can be tiring and exhausting. If you are like many business travelers, you will understand what I meant. You might feel like sitting on the couch while watching TV with your family but instead, you sit on a limo seat, alone, with a killer higher ups ready to ask for your business plans. You might want to wear your favorite t-shirt and boxer but since you are on the business travel, you need to wear your business suit. That means you must maintain your company’s image by grooming, behaving, as well as emphasizing good attitude. In or out of the limo, there are some points to consider to behave well during your business trip.
Being Courteous During the Business travel
Assuming that you are hosting as your company representative, you will need to be courteous and polite in the entire trip. It all starts from dealing with airport arrival, checking in, or while getting on a limo. As you are the representative, the other parties will judge the company’s image from your behavior.
Don’t Let Your Personal Feelings Affect The Business Trip
No matter how convenient and comfortable the limo transportation is, it will not be affecting if you hinder the business trip by your personal feelings. Something in your family might bother you in work, but it is not a good reason to give you the right to be unfriendly to your co-workers.
Make Sure You Respect The other Party’s Privacy
Both you and your guest have your own room. For instance, your company has no idea that the other party sends their female representative. They might put you two in a single room which obviously cause you and her in such an uncomfortable situation. Not to mention that it will be a problem if one of you are married. So, while in the limo, you want to call the hotel receptionist to provide another room for you, or an extra bed if they don’t have any room left.
Be Punctual and “in” Time
Again, assuming that you are the host of the travel, you will need to be punctual at the meeting point. Bear in mind that being ‘in” time is much better than “on” time. You will have spare time to exercise your warm welcoming words or anything else you need to make a good impression.
