Personal Skills for Professional Success—that’s the subtitle of our flagship book on etiquette, The Etiquette Advantage in Business, 3rd edition, and it’s why business etiquette training is so valuable for companies and for individuals. Whether it is in a meeting, in a communication, around a water cooler, on a business trip, at a business social mixer, or at an important business meal, personal skills make or break relationships. An individual’s professional success hinges on how well he or she can build strong relationships. In turn, when an individual is successful, their company succeeds as well.

Business etiquette training directly impacts the bottom line because decision makers, colleagues, bosses, clients, and prospects will choose to do business with people in whom they have confidence. The Emily Post Business Etiquette Seminars teach participants:

  • The manners that people expect them to know
  • The skills to figure out how to interact with others successfully when there is no manner
  • The confidence to handle any situation, from the day-to-day to the crucial
  • How to use every interaction as an opportunity to enhance relationships

The end result: Participants who know how to build better, stronger, more successful relationships. Consequently, they gain the competitive edge.
