English is definitely the most spoken language in the world and what better way to honor that by telling you why speaking English makes you cool when you're travelling. Ever felt like an alien and lost when you are surrounded by people who don't speak your language? Exactly. Now imagine if your English is excellent. Let us break it down for you.
People who feel included and wanted, who know that their presence on the job is important – are less apt to be late or absent. Anyone who could come up with a guaranteed cure for lateness and absenteeism could sell the secret and retire in style.
Lateness and absenteeism are perennial problems for which there seems no cure – you must make it a point to continually work at it. Why?

One of the most important things a boss should do is keep people informed. The manager who does not is losing valuable goodwill and cooperation. People like to know what is going on. Employees like to know about things that affect them, their department, or their company. They work better when they do.
The difference between an outstanding manager and an ordinary one is often a matter of showing initiative – recognizing and accepting responsibility for getting things started.
To initiate means to start. Initiative is the ability to get things started. It’s the mark of a good team lead, foreman, supervisor, manager, or executive.
