Conversation Etiquette:

Conversation Etiquette Always listen to others attentively. A good listener is always dear to every client. Speak only when the other person has finished talking instead of interrupting in between. Keep a low but clear and calm voice while conversing. Your tone should always be polite. While conversing always look into the eyes of the other person and avoid showing your back or looking elsewhere. Keep your conversations short and to the point instead of getting into irrelevant topics and discussions. Remember this is a business talk and not a family re-union. The SujiT

Handshake Etiquette:

Handshake Etiquette When shaking hands always offer a firm handshake with your fingers titled down and your thumb up. However, ensure your handshake is not so firm that it crushes or hurts the other person's hand. This indicates that you are dominant. Limit the time of handshakes to 2 to 3 seconds and take your hand back gracefully. Avoid patting on the back of the hand. While shaking hands, greet the person by looking into his/her eyes.

Dressing Etiquette:

Dressing Etiquette Always wear neat and nicely pressed formal clothes. Choose corporate shades while you are picking up clothes for your office wear. Women should avoid wearing exposing dresses and opt for little but natural make-ups. Men need to keep their hair (including facial hair) neatly trimmed and set. The SujiT

Always polish your shoes. Keep your nails clean. Wear clothes which you are comfortable in and can carry well. This is very important while you are in a business meeting or client presentation. The SujiT

Communication Etiquette:

Communication Etiquette While communicating with your colleagues, seniors or clients through emails, always address the person with 'Dear' 'Hi' or 'Hello' followed by a title (Mr./Mrs./Miss etc.) and his/her name and end your mail with 'Yours Sincerely' or 'Yours Truly', whatever suits best with your name and designation. Also, always mention a 'Subject' to all your official mails. Keep official mails preferably short and precise. However, if the subject demands elaborate details and explanations, go ahead but use a friendly formal language instead of a casual one. The SujiT

Allow your guest to select the menu and wine. If something unwanted has gone to your mouth, place the napkin in front of your mouth tactfully and bring it out instead if putting your hand inside the mouth to get rid of it. Avoid talking when there is food in your mouth. Learn the basic table manners before you go out to dine with a potential client or an important business meet. The SujiT

General Etiquette:

General Etiquette Always be punctual at your workplace. Switch off or put your mobile/cell phones in silent mode while in a conference call , business meeting or corporate presentation. In case it is an urgent call which you need to take excuse yourself and take permission from the others for taking the call. Avoid digging your nose in public. Use handkerchiefs when you are coughing/sneezing in public. When in a meeting room, always stand up to greet the seniors of they arrive after you. The SujiT

Try to ignore and overlook funny or embarrassing sounds when in a meeting or official conversation. If you have forgotten somebody's name ask him/her politely saying that you are sorry that you cannot remember the name. Always keep a comfortable distance while conversing with others. Avoid standing or sitting too close to the other person. An arm's length would be ideal to maintain the comfort zone. It would be nice if you hold the door for the person who is coming immediately behind you. The SujiT
