Enlightenment of Change – The Survival Guide to Modern Business
Connie’s motivational quote for today is by ~ Emily Post
“Nothing is less important than which fork you use. Etiquette is the science of living. It embraces everything. It is ethics. It is honor.”
Etiquette – do you think this is an antiquated word? But what it’s really all about is respectful behavior and simple manners – how you conduct yourself and how you treat others. Etiquette, manners and behavior in the workplace are a biggie.
The reality is that in today’s workforce, people come from five generations and all kinds of backgrounds and perspectives. We are working together under intense pressure, avoiding saying or doing something that might annoy, offend, or alienate someone is like walking through a minefield.
How can business leaders mitigate misunderstandings and foster teamwork? How can young professionals minimize interpersonal missteps?
