Recently I visited a networking event. Met some nice people and as usual there were more coaches in the room. I always welcome that fact. I like observing people and a little competition keeps one on their toes. When one of the coaches approached me, this is how some of the conversation went: Me: "Hi Darren, what do you do?" Darren: "I’m a Business Coach." We had a little chat which left me feeling slightly uninspired. Couple of minutes later someone else came up to me and as
To some of us reliability comes naturally: We keep our words. Do not let others down. Show up for meetings on time. Pick up calls or at least return them in timely manners.

The fact is that when you first meet a person, they make judgment about you in approximately four seconds, and his judgment is finalized largely within 30 seconds of the initial contact.
