Remember that infamous showbiz incident where an allegedly drunk Baron Geisler urinated on Ping Medina while shooting the film Bubog, which led to him being banned by the Professional Artist Managers, Inc. (PAMI) from working with its talents.
All industries have a set of decorum that should be observed, because really, it’s just about respecting yourself as well as the people you work with. While the example above may seem over-the-top, it just goes to show that there will always be consequences to your actions, and there are certain things that you just don’t do if you want to stay professional, such as:
1. Coming to work intoxicated
Your company really doesn’t care if you went home in the wee hours of the morning wasted, just as long as you can properly function at work the following day. However, if you’re planning to go straight to work after your friend’s all-night bachelorette party, then best call in sick. Aside from the fact that you won’t be able to perform properly in your condition anyway, your teammates may even come to the unfair generalization that you’re someone irresponsible.
And this isn’t just about swiping another person’s food in your communal fridge. It’s also about stealing ideas and concepts from your teammates just to make yourself look good in your supervisor’s eyes. Respect other people’s efforts, and moreover, respect your skills enough to know that you can also come up with something brilliant.
