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.
