How Soon Should You Start Practicing Good Manners on the Job?

As the most priceless business tool you can possess is good manners, I highly advise you to start exhibiting vital business etiquette as soon as you ace an interview and get started on the job.

As a professional who has learned a few business manners and mastered those, you should:

📌 Be on time for work.

📌 Say "hello" or "hi" not only to those, you work closely with but to others who work in the company.

📌 Be aware of your colleagues and respect them.

📌 Treat colleagues kindly and empathically, by considering their feelings.

📌 Gain a good name by doing the right thing at the right time.

📌 Handle yourself with grace and work well in teams.

📌 Interact with colleagues/customers in a way that creates a positive impression.

📌 Show an interest in those you work with while maintaining a good working relationship or friendship.

📌 There’s an organization culture significant to each company, learn and follow the etiquette style that is suited to where you work to stand in good stead professionally.

📌 Accompany your request with “please” and when your request is granted, follow it with “thank you.”

📌 Confidently interact in professional manners.

📌 Show self-control in conflict situations, and use good manners to resolve issues.

📌 Act in a professional to customers.

📌 Take responsibility for your actions.

📌 Interact professionally by phone, letter and email.

Exercise: How to practice good manners on the job regularly

Think about some of the ways you are most likely to behave on a day-to-day basis at work. For example, if you’re a customer care officer you will probably be dealing with a lot of customers. List customer service etiquette to deliver a better experience, learn and master those.


Love & more success, 💗
