How do you spell the word that means manners? <br />A) Eticut<br />B) Eticutte<br />C) Etiquette<br />D) Et it cut<br />The answers is C!<br />
Business etiquette is:<br />Eating with the right fork.<br />Presenting yourself with professionalism.<br />Making people feel comfortable around you.<br />All of the above.<br />Answer: All of the above; although eating with the right fork is the least of your worries.<br />
Business Dress is:<br />Wearing a suit every day.<br />Being comfortable in your clothes no matter how they look.<br />Never wearing flip flops.<br />Dressing appropriately for the situation.<br />The answer is D.<br />
Dressing appropriately is:<br />Not caring about the way you dress.<br />Wearing wrinkled or smelly clothes because you forgot to put your clothes in the laundry.<br />Wearing tight or revealing clothes because they are in style.<br />Wearing your jeans just low enough to show waistband of your boxers.<br />None of the above---Duh<br />
Dressing appropriately is:<br />Wearing clean clothes.<br />Making sure you don’t stink by taking a shower every day.<br />Making sure your underwear is covered and not showing through thin fabric. <br />Dressing conservatively in a business environment—probably NOT jeans and a T-shirt.<br />All of the above, of course.<br />
Appropriate language/communication is:<br />Using only “soft” swear words if you get mad.<br />Looking down when you are talking to someone.<br />Yelling across the room to your friend because they are clear across the room.<br />Jumping up and down calling out “oooo, oooo, oooo” because you’re sure you have the right answer.<br />None of the above—again. <br />
Appropriate language/communication is:<br />Using words your grandma would let you use. (NOT four letter words)<br />Looking directly at those you are speaking to.<br />Speaking loudly enough to be heard by the one you are addressing, but not so loud that everyone has to hear your conversation.<br />Answering questions when asked. Offering information when your ideas are related to the topic.<br />You already know the answer to this one.<br />
When someone is presenting: <br />Talk to your friends quietly because no one will notice you are talking.<br />Listen attentively WITH OUT talking.<br />Put your head on the desk.<br />Text with your phone under the desk or in your purse because no one can tell you are texting.<br />You know the answer. What does it mean to listen attentively?<br />
What to do when a presenter asks a question:<br />Sit very still with a very bored look on your face.<br />Say to your friend quietly, “Whatever”<br />Raise hand/wait to be called on/answer appropriately.<br />Raise hand/wait to be called on/say “Can I go to the bathroom?”<br />What are appropriate questions?<br />
Business and the cell? If you are in a class or presentation:<br />Be sure your cell phone is on vibrate and will vibrate loudly so you know when you get a text.<br />Text discretely like you always do in class.<br />Raise your hand and ask to go the bathroom so you can answer a text.<br />Leave your cell phone off, you can look at it after the class/presentation.<br />Do you get the idea yet? Cell Phones can be a MAJOR DISRUPTION, but they don’t have to be. It’s up to you.<br />
Why should I pay attention?<br />I may actually learn something important to me.<br />I may want to contact a presenter about a future job or future education.<br />I could make a great impression on a professor or employer because I learned and remembered details.<br />I might learn that my chosen interests aren’t really that interesting to me anyway.<br />All of the above.<br />
Be courteous to presenters by:<br />Being late to the class/presentation.<br />Talking/texting/yawning during the class.<br />Not caring enough to really listen.<br />You know what to do….and after treating your presenter with respect….<br />SAY THANK YOU.<br />
