The Nuts & Bolts of Current HR – Redesign and Re-skill HR? 08/26 by YPI Consultants LLC | Business Podcasts.

The Nuts & Bolts of current HR – Redesign and Re-skill HR?

HR’s value is being measured by its ability to source, attract, retain and build talent. No longer is it simply the ability to deliver service to employees. Is HR the keeper of the corporate talent system or architect for the talent machine, or just a provider of needed employee and manager services?

Hosted by YPI Consultants founder and President, Joann Venezia with co-host Wendy Oliveras and special guests Rick Maher of Effective HR.

Telephone Etiquette

Telephone Etiquette is described as a set of rules that you apply when you make or receive a telephone call. It is as simple and basic as saying Hello, Thank you for calling ABC Company and How may I direct your call.  During the  business day all employees are expected to follow the company guidelines for handling telephone calls from everyone who calls. Some of the callers may be current customers, employee family members, employees or a prospect and the manner in-which you handle the call can make a  big difference to the company brand,  your brand and the bottom line. You can assist in creating a strong brand for the company and yourself by following these basic rules.

1) Answer all calls before fourth ring.

telephone_images_clip_art_005 (1)

2) No chewing gum, eating or drinking during a call.

3) Always put your best foot forward at the start of the call and answer with a smile.

4) Speak clearly and do not mumble or use slang.

5) Listen carefully to the callers needs and take notes.

6) Do not push the caller on to another who is not qualified to handle the call just to move them along.

7) Inform the caller who you are forwarding the call to and why. Remember that an informed customer is your best asset.

 

8) If you are unable to take the call, let the caller know when they can expect a return call and stick to your word. I cannot tell you how important that is to the caller and shows them you respect their time and you are professional.

The telephone may be the first contact you have with a customer, so use it to your advantage. Train your staff on the Professional Etiquette requirements for your organization and host refresher classes from time to time for all employees.

Train your team to meet the needs of your organization for today and your future goals.

Why? Because Image Matters!

 

 

Basic Etiquette

Image

Today on “Image Talk Tuesday”, my blog talk radio show (http://www.blogtalkradio.com/ypiconsultants/2013/03/26/image-talk), we discussed Basic Etiquette.

Dictionary.com defines etiquette as:

1.conventional requirements as to social behavior; proprieties of conduct as established in any class or community or for any occasion.
2.a prescribed or accepted code of usage in matters of ceremony,as at a court or in official or other formal observances.
3.the code of ethical behavior regarding professional practice or action among the members of a profession in their dealings with each other: medical etiquette.

Too often we take basic etiquette for granted or think it is not required. How wrong is that way of thinking? . Very wrong. Basic etiquette shows that you respect yourself and have respect for others. That is a big statement to make without speaking a word and can separate you from your competition when looking for a job, a promotion or closing a sale. Basic etiquette is simply having respect and using the words “Please”, “Thank you:, “Your welcome”, “May I be excused:, “Excuse me” and alike, you get my point. Seems so simple yet not considered essential. Etiquette is essential in today’s business environment and can make or break a deal. Understanding Professionalism and using your etiquette skills properly makes a big difference. Your language, tone, body language, attire and etiquette shows others Your level of Professionalism.

Do not let your lack of etiquette or professionalism keep you from reaching your goals.

Uncomfortable or unsure of your etiquette skills or your level of professionalism, contact Joann, Founder and President of YPI Consultants at joann@ypiconsultants or call 631-320-0217.

Professionalism….Is It Required?

As the Founder and President of YPI Consultants, LLC business owners and professionals have a level of expectation regarding my level of professionalism. Recently during several conversations with business owners and professionals it has been brought to my attention that our nation has been considered rude and unethical at (many) times. When I heard this I was immediately saddened, but I stopped to reflect where this impression may be derived. A flash of the many reality shows came to mind, the subtle  manners of the housewives of…, Survivor and the backstabbing methods of surviving the games and challenges, Jersey Shores and their cut throat hospitality along with their rude fun and antics and let’s not forget those looking for love and their mission to stir the pot of love with venomous cocktails on the beach.

If this is the impression we are sending across the globe, I think it is time to revisit the term Professionalism.

Professionalism…What is it?

This is the definition according to Merriam-Webster online dictionary(as a noun)

:1.  the conduct, aims, or qualities that characterize or mark a profession or a professional person(see 1professional).2. the following of a profession (as athletics) for gain or livelihood.

This is the definition from bing:Vlado Photo 34167yz22srweyd

pro·fes·sion·al·ism

 [ prō féshən'l ìzzəm ] 1.professional standards: the skill, competence, or character expected of a member of a highly trained profession 2. use of professionals: the use of professionals instead of amateurs.

Definition of PROFESSIONAL (as an adjective)

a : of, relating to, or characteristic of a profession

b : engaged in one of the learned professions

c (1) : characterized by or conforming to the technical or ethical standards of a profession (2) : exhibiting a courteous, conscientious, and generally businesslike manner in the workplace

We all, including myself, at some time have been less professional than expected, but we know the difference and therefore make better decision because of that knowledge and experience. Not to mention we are no longer the amateurs behaving in an unprofessional manner. I ask the next time you are about to loss your respect for another or act in an unprofessional manner, that you take a deep breath and ask yourself if you are the amateur or the professional.
Be the change you want to see in the world.

The Heart and Mind of the Matter.

Image

Did you know that your heart and mind play a big part of your personal image; the image you project to the world? Think about it for a minute. How you feel about yourself and the words you use during your self-talk will build up your confidence or tear you down.  Your confidence or lack of will reflect in the image you are projecting to the world by your body language.  We judge people all the time by the way they look, how they dress and the way they carry themselves. To gain a better understanding of this start noticing the body language and facial expressions of others as they pass your desk at work or in the hall. Note their body language; is it easy to notice who is confident and who is not? They could be having a bad day. Remember, what you are feeling reflects in your personal image or personal presentation.

Therefore, it is time to snap out of it and stop the negative self-talk.

Change your negative thoughts to positive thoughts and you will change your focus.

Change your focus and you change your minds direction.

Change your minds direction and you will change your life!

It all starts with a couple positive words.

I Am Worthy Because …..

I Am Confident Because……

I Will Reach My Goals Because…..

You finish the sentence.
