Those who show little respect for other people rarely stand out as stars. To make sure you show respect, review your skills in these key areas:

Punctuality. Arrive on time for appointments. Start meetings on time. When people arrive at scheduled times, don’t keep them waiting.

Brevity. Keep meetings and conversations compact. Be careful that water-cooler chitchat doesn’t distract people from work for too long.

Efficiency. Help others eliminate repetitive, unnecessary duties. But also remember that certain routines provide a repetitive structure that helps people work better.
