Course Overview

Etiquette encompasses the prescriptive elements of culture – the things people are expected to do and say, or to avoid doing and saying.

The significance of Business Etiquette is that it provides a framework within which business people can operate as they communicate and collaborate.

Attention to etiquette is a sign of professionalism and respect for others and it can make positive first impressions while building trust among colleagues. When business colleagues and partners adhere to a well understood code of etiquette it can be easier for diverse individuals to work together focusing their energies on the task at hand rather than trying to understand cultural eccentricities.

Liderazgo’s Business Etiquette programme encompasses a wide range of factors that come into play providing a commonly understood framework for social and workplace interaction.
