April 28, 2006, Newsletter Issue #43: Traveling with Your Boss

Tip of the Week

If you find yourself setting off on a business trip with the boss, keep two words in mind: respect and deference. Now bowing and scraping is in order (nor should your boss expect it), but holding doors, seeing to it that she has the more comfortable seat, and letting her initiate a conversation show an unspoken understanding of your respective ranks. Unless our executive traveling companion insists on doing them herself, you should take charge of various tasks—hailing cabs, checking in at the hotel, making restaurant reservations, and tipping service people. Stay on your toes in all regards: Traveling with the boss gives you the opportunity not only to let her get to know you better but also for you to shine.
