Make a point of changing that behavior.

Being late to work, a meeting, or even to a social gathering, will imply either that you don’t have your act together or that your time is more important than that of the person who was waiting for you. 
上班迟到、开会迟到甚至社交活动迟到,要么显得你是个没有条理的人,要么显得你对等待你的人毫不重视。
Being prompt reflects courtesy and reliability, both of which are powerful traits in business.

4. Hone Communication Skills
4. 提高沟通技巧

Speaking from behind a lectern, participating in a conference call or composing an email, excellent communication skills are essential. 
无论是在讲台上演说、参与电话会议还是撰写电子邮件,出色的沟通技巧必不可少。
While some people may be naturally gregarious or charismatic, even introverted women may still excel at this, as long as they are assertive and pay attention to detail.
虽然有些人可能天生就魅力无穷、热爱交际,但是即使内敛的女性也仍能脱颖而出——只要她充满自信并且注重细节。


“All too often, we soften or weaken our message with words like ‘you know what I mean?,’ or ‘if that’s okay with you?’” said Ziegler. 
“我们经常脱口而出的‘你懂我的意思吗?’或是‘这样你觉得好吗?’,往往会模糊、削弱我们想传达的内容。”Ziegler说道。
“What you have to remember is that you’re an intelligent, articulate woman and you’ve more than earned your place at the table.” 
“你必须要记住:你是一位思维敏捷、善于表达的女性,你比你已经取得的还要更好。”
If you have a tendency toward falling back on weaker language, prepare what you have to say in advance of any meeting so that you’re sure of the words coming out of your mouth.
如果你会不由自主地使用回软弱的语言,那就在每次会议前预先准备好自己要说的内容,这样就能对脱口而出的话更有把握。
