There are many ways by which you can leave a horrible impression on your new boss. Do you want to avoid them? We have located the worst of the worst, and based on that we have established this 5-element listing, so you can learn about them and avoid them. Because these 5 mistakes can leave a very bad impression on your boss, and we all know that it’s never a good thing.
Don’t Dress Correctly:
The way you dress can have a huge effect on how your boss perceives you. If you want to be perceived as a clean, responsible and useful employee, then you should care about your looks. This is more important than you think, because your appearance will always be a part of how people perceive you, and that includes your boss. Always care about your hygiene, make sure you meet the dress code and that your clothes are always fresh and clean.
Your boss will also care about the way you speak. If you often use inappropriate vocabulary, then you may want to leave it for your friends, because your boss will see it as a big flaw. We all like to curse every now and then, that’s natural, but never do it in front of your boss, because this will leave a very bad impression and this is the last thing you want.
Your boss needs to see in you a clean, polite and hard-working individual, and the vocabulary you use when you talk to him will have a huge role on this. So take care about your words and try to be as polite as possible.
Being arrogant, just like using inappropriate vocabulary, can really create a very bad impression about yourself. Avoid being arrogant with your boss, you should always be humble and polite. Of course, you need to have your own authority and personality, because just like anyone likes an arrogant person, neither nobody likes someone everybody can step on. You need to make people respect yourself, but don’t take this as an excuse to be an arrogant person.
We meant that apologizing for a mistake of yours is ok and is the right thing to do, but over apologizing can destroy your image. You need to hold frame and never over apologize, especially to your boss, because this will speak very bad about yourself.
Being Too Shy:
We all know that talking to your boss directly can be a stressful situation. But you should never be too shy, because this will also leave a bad impression on your boss. You need to look directly on the eyes and have a very nice corporal communication: stand still, don’t put your hands in your pockets and look in the eyes of the person you are talking to; in this case your boss. So remember it, be confident about yourself and don’t be shy, this will ruin your image.
