Top 5 Business Manners that Truly Matter

Say Thank You to Everyone and ALWAYS Write a Thank You Note.

Beth Strong Taber

The knowledge of business etiquette applies to all, whether you’re a successful business executive or a recent college graduate just entering the business world. We can all use gentle reminders of how to behave appropriately in our day-to-day business life. There may be times when you find the adage true that “you don’t know what you don’t know”, so it behooves you to learn as much as you can about the finer aspects of business protocol, as well.

Some may disagree, but in the 21st century, although it is certainly less true than in the past, for a woman to be successful in the business world, she must often work harder, stay later and be more prepared than her male counterparts; unfair, but still, unfortunately, true. There are many things that a woman can do, though, that go a long way in ensuring that she is taken seriously immediately and consistently and that her hard work and knowledge are what her co-workers and superiors know to be true of her.

The following should be your rules to work by:

1. Be Prepared

2. Be Early

3. Dress Appropriately

4. Be Gracious

5. Follow Through
