It is easy to forget we are always representing someone or something. It may be your family, your company, your school, or most importantly, and frequently overlooked, yourself.
Whenever we are in public or on social media, it is imperative to be a good ambassador for who or what we represent.
People make judgements by our verbal and visual presentation. This is important to remember at all times, not during work hours only.
For example, if you tend to use foul language frequently, not only do you make yourself look bad, but you also make your family, friends, and the company you work for look bad as well. Remember the saying, “Birds of a feather flock together”. The reputation of everything you are associated with depends are your public presentation. Don’t let them down. It is much easier to maintain a good reputation than to change a bad reputation.
Before you step out of the house or update your social media status, stop and think about the message you’re conveying and how it will effect who and what you represent.
