Business Etiquette

Business Etiquette 15% of the reason you will get a job, keep a job or be promoted in your career will be your knowledge and technical skills. 85% of your job success will be based on your "people skills".

Ken Blanchard, Author #1 NY Times Best Seller: The One Minute Manager

Etiquette Pays Off!

Formerly perceived as soft skills, busy, results-oriented professionals have found that professional etiquette influences their success because it:

  • Differentiates them in a competitive market.
  • Honors commitments to quality and excellence.
  • Enables them to be confident in a variety of settings with a variety of people from all walks of life.
  • Modifies distracting behaviors and develops admired conduct.

"The mark of a good conversationalist? Pay attention to what people say!"
-Larry King
