How to Travel With Your Boss & Have Some Fun on the Road

by AvenueWest Managed Corporate Housing

Our saga continues with our 10 best travel tips and 10 new smartphone/tablet applications all tailor made for the busy traveling professional.

Travel Tip of the Week #7:

Traveling with your boss is a 24/7 endeavor. Whenever you find yourself traveling with your boss, take these suggestions to heart to ensure a professional outlook on everything you do:

1)      Always remember your boss is watching you at all times and evaluating your behavior and mannerisms.

2)      Don’t cause problems but find valuable solutions while you are on a business trip – especially when your boss is tagging along.

3)      Always be punctual.

4)      Always be polite to everyone including staff members where you are lodging, restaurants, shops, etc.

5)      Do NOT drink too much.

6)      Do not ask for any special favors from your boss.

7)      Go with the flow – do not be difficult.

8)      If your boss is asking you to behave in an unprofessional manner, do not fall into temptation and politely decline.

9)      Keep your cell phone hidden from view.

10)  Do not lose your cool or cry no matter what the circumstances are. If you must do so, take it away from your boss’s sight and never in front of clients!

Traveling with your boss can be a rewarding experience but be sure to follow these tips so you remain gainfully employed. Remember, you’re still “on” even during down times with your boss.
