“Business Etiquette and Effective Communication”

Two quotes that ring true. “Good manners will open doors that the best education cannot”. “Good manners reflect something from inside, an innate sense of consideration for others and respect for self.”

Proper etiquette and good manners are essential to succeed in business. The appropriate shaking of hands, exchange of business cards, or a polite exchange of opinions all require a pleasant restraint and respectful countenance. The road to success is paved with “thank yous” and “you’re welcomes” coated with mutual respect.

We live in an age of accelerated technology which threatens the old fashion rules of etiquette in the workplace. A failure to recognize the continued importance of appropriate business etiquette, grace and good manners will surely lead to repetitive episodes of miscommunication and disappointment. YOU can determine YOUR success, which doors will open for you and which ones will inevitably close behind you.

Join Triangle BABCNC as we welcome our special guest speaker who will address this fascinating topic, “Business Etiquette and Effective Communication”. Ms. Marla Goonan, Professional Coach, Speaker and Instructor will highlight some of the fundamental tips to ensure appropriate communication, correct business etiquette, and the successful use of good manners in our fast paced, ever changing 21st century workplace.
