Etiquette for Business

Since the “Book of Civilized Man” was published in the 13th Century, many things have changed, but like a refined wine, some things get better with age. The world has changed quite a bit in the last 100 years, but as Emily Post once said: “Etiquette is the science of living. It embraces everything. It is ethics. It is honor.” Manners, Etiquette and Protocol are the communication devices that unite us as a civilized species and will never go out of style.

Success is built on many factors, which include understanding the power of communication. They say that you never get a second chance to make a first impression, and in this Century it is as true as it ever was. Employing Business Etiquette Cultural Training, Dining Etiquette, Dress, Decorum and a sprinkle of good old Table Manners can be applied to Phone and Email Etiquette that’ll make the difference between traveling First Class and coach.

Refinement is a learned behavior, much like driving an automobile. Over time, and with experience it becomes second nature, so that when you hit an icy patch in the road, you don’t find yourself in the ditch. A conversation can unfold with similar results, but as you learn and apply the knowledge of Etiquette, you will recognize and avoid pitfalls.

Once upon a time hard work and quality product were all that was required to be at the top. Those things still hold true, but what really separates your business from your competitors is a belief, an ideal, a philosophy. The one thing that all of your clients have in common is that they bought into you. You got yourself this far, now let us help you achieve the next level. “Good manners will open doors that the best education cannot.”
