  • What is Etiquette? “ Etiquette is a set of traditions, based on kindness, efficiency, and logic that have evolved over time. They give you a structure in which to operate. Think of them as rules of the game. Would you play golf or football without knowing the rules? And even if you would, do you think you’d be asked to play again?

  • Business Etiquette Beyond the Table!
    • Exercise GOOD TASTE AND COMMON SENSE - It doesn't matter how casual the corporate culture may seem... You don't want to come across/be perceived as rude and assuming
    • RESPECT other people's time and space - the word excuse me
    • COMMUNICATION - e.g.. If you're busying meeting a deadline and you're interrupted, say so... "I'm on a deadline right now. Can I call you back....
    • BE CONSIDERATE - If you play music in your work area.. use earphones. Coworkers may not share your tastes!

  • The Airports Snafu A sales representative went to pick up the district manager. But he didn’t offer to help with the luggage, even though his car was parked in a remote parking lot. When they finally reached the car, it was dirty and littered; moreover he had a spot on his tie. He was not put on the promotion list Request for permission to use/reproduce should be directed to Lenroy Jones Email: Lenroy.Jones@yahoo.com Skype: lenroy.jones
    • RETURN ALL CALLS - even if you have to leave a message. Give that person your full attention. Don't do work while you're on the phone unless it's related to your call.
    • STAND DURING INTRODUCTIONS - Shake hands with a firm handshake and give good eye contact. Don't try to arm wrestle!
    • RUDENESS - Do not interrupt other during conversations. Allow them to finish their thoughts before you respond.
