From tips like dining (BMW keeps your water in the right place!) to the obvious don't talk negative about the boss on social media, the lack of manners some professionals express is not professional.
As I read the copy I received from NetGalley, I thought of my peers in the agriculture world and thought overall we're a pretty good group of people. I've seen others in airports and travel situations that could use this book.
Looking and acting your best comes across in attitude. How we present ourselves goes beyond what we say. Common courtesy please and thank you make a difference, but this book goes beyond that. Working a room, ordering wine, handling detractors during presentations - it's covered here. The cell phone and headset advice should be required reading!
It's an easy read with action points throughout. Those who heed common courtesy get further because they find more doors open. Worth the money and time to read and implement.
Someone told me recently: reading about etiquette?, who cares, we’re in the casual times.
I said may be, but in my opinion, today’s business world is driven by decision makers, global players, policy makers, VIP enterprises, think-tanks and other key actors that do care. And I want my friends, colleagues, customers, members of family and of course myself to move so close as possible around that small segment. And to do so, you need to know the etiquette rules.
Written in a pleasant, sometimes humorous way, with clever and easy-to-implement tips. A broad experience of Ms. Barbara Pachter and her collaborator Denise Cowie backrounds the theory.
As an Ariadne'e thread, Ms. Prachter seeks along her book to cause the enthusiasm of the reader, the job seeker, the candidate for a promotion, etc., for learning the key factors on etiquette.
Problems like the lack of confidence, the “putting-yourself-down” symptoms are well described along recommendations on how try to fix them.
I will keep this book for a long time; and I might even have to read it a couple of times as I practice these guidelines more and more.
I am very pleased with it and already notice improvement.
