Sterling Manners, a Business Etiquette Refresher - Chicago

This master class will teach communicators of all ages, young professional to C-Level executives, how to communicate in a business setting.

We will discuss…

  • Funny anecdotes about commonly used formalities in correspondence – for instance, the phrasing "please see attached" may seem polite in an email but can come off curt and hostile.
  • Meeting and interview etiquette and how to navigate tricky situations.
  • Clearing up misconceptions around dress codes (what is "Smart Casual?") and cell phone etiquette.
  • Professional presence such as body language and sub-conscious cues to ensure you make an impact and are remembered at networking events & business functions.

 

“You can get through life with bad manners, but it’s easier with good manners.”

-Lillian Gish

 

Register today & join us to learn about these “good manners” in the business world!
