Business etiquette is made up of significantly more important things…it’s about presenting oneself with the kind of polish that shows one can be taken seriously. Business etiquette is also about being comfortable around people and making them comfortable around you, which is very important when you make a business call. Winning business won’t be tough if you understand the term business etiquette. Today, nothing else can bring the success until and unless you have good etiquette, says Pria Warrick, President cum Executive Director of Delhi-based Pria Warrick Finishing School. “Etiquette is nothing but manners that is essential to be followed in a business environment. It is the magic mantra which makes the young executives follow a code of behaviour, follow the rules of decorum, be aware of changing international culture and thus make the right impression on clients. Moreover, precisely defining etiquette we can say it is a blanket word which includes dress and address civility, formality propriety, protocol and the ability to consider the rights of other before your own feelings and to consider the feelings of others before your own rights,” says Col. A.K Rajpal, head of Communication and Behavioral Sciences Department and Head of Students Welfare Department, Amity Business School. “Business etiquette facilitates to deal with customers confidently,” Pria says.

Share SMEBS blogAccording to Pria “Business etiquette isn’t meant to bestuffy or formal. It’s really about being kind, considerate andrespectful.”“One may tend to agree that some of the SMEs are unawareof the advantages of business etiquette. They cannot andwill not identify it as a key skill, the open sesame into thebusiness world. The objective of garnering this skill is toenhance self awareness and understand that business has itsown rules of conduct. A business executive must follow theserules and understand his responsibility to the customers, tothe employees and of course to the nation,” Rajpal says.“Mostly, the corporate people come to me for groomingbecause they urge to get the designated position in anorganization. They desire to come up to the top managementlevel for which they require proper business etiquette to dealwith clients,” says Pria.“In our institute (Pria Warrick Finishing School) wegroom professionals with a degree in computers, businessadministration, law or any other field, where there require theart of carrying themselves in the society and in the businessworld,” she adds.“In fact, SMEs are not that much keen to polish themselves.The reason might be they are small entrepreneurs who believein just money making,” she commented.According to Hilka Klinkenberg, director of EtiquetteInternational, a business etiquette firm, the basics ofprofessional etiquette are really quite simple. First,understand the difference between business etiquette andsocial etiquette. Business etiquette is genderless. For example,the traditional chivalrous etiquette of holding the door openfor a woman is not necessary in the workplace and can evenhave the unintended effect of offending her. In the workenvironment, men and women are peers.Second, your guiding principle should always be to treatpeople with consideration and respect. Although this mayseem obvious, Klinkenberg cites this basic decency as afrequent casualty in today’s workplace.“Business etiquette is not just a key one may use whenrequired, or a dress to be donned on certain occasions. It hasto become ingrained as part of the grooming of ones own valuesystem,” says Rajpal.“At Amity Business School (ABS) we start this process onDay 1. Etiquette is a must for any Amitian.
