Etiquette Friday: Gives Confidence & Good Social SkillsBy Angela Marshall, 13th Apr 2012
Having the Appropriate Etiquette & Good Manners Gives Confidence & Good Social Skills
It’s Friday and the day I request you join me in my campaign for 2012 to change “Casual Friday” to “Etiquette Friday”, to get people and companies involved. If we consciously make an effort every Friday then hopefully it will become a habit every day. I challenge you to make one small change a week and by the end of the year let’s hope we have a more pleasant and positive society.
The confidence that comes with knowing etiquette and being well mannered builds strong social skills; allows you to stand out from the crowd, and quickly builds successful and professional relationships. It is so important to be well mannered.
It is important to be well mannered when you go for an interview for a job and it can boost your chances of success as other candidates may well be poorly mannered. Remember to stand up when when someone enters a room, do not interrupt the interviewer, have good table manners if taken for lunch and always thank the interviewer/s for their time.
Good manners may not be commented on but bad manners will not be forgotten.
