In a world of texts, tweets, cube farms, and Casual Fridays, have manners gone the way of the dodo? An AP/Ipsos poll says that 69% find people ruder than a generation ago. But rudeness isn’t just bad form – it’s bad business.
The truth is, multimillion-dollar deals (and people’s jobs) can be lost as a result of poor etiquette. In today’s competitive climate, knowing how to act – and how not to – can spell the difference between success and failure.
Business Management Daily has teamed up with the famed Emily Post Institute to present an interactive webinar on business etiquette.
Topic: Emily Post’s Guide to Business Etiquette for the 21st Century
