This course has been developed to help ensure the people in your organisation are aware of the importance of meeting common workplace standards. Participants may not be aware how certain behaviours affect others within the organisation, and indeed how that affects the business as a whole. Alternatively, it might be that your people need to have honest conversations with each other to ensure they work together collaboratively.
The session will help your attendees build self-awareness and will highlight the important parts of business etiquette and why it’s such an important topic.
As our day-to-day roles move from the static office based 9-5 jobs to more flexible and remote working practices, it is becoming more important that we focus on modern business etiquette to ensure success. Whether it is in person or over email and telephone, it is worth thinking about our social impact and behaviours on others to ensure we work collaboratively and effectively.
This training course has been designed to help attendees think about how they can successfully build professional relationships in whatever environment they work in. Attendees are encouraged to think about how they already come across, as well as how they can give feedback to others who perhaps might need some extra support.
Why is running this building better work habits course a good idea?
Well, just imagine if your staff were better able to:
- Understand that business etiquette isn’t a fluffy “nice to have” but an integral part of your organisation
- Think about what the impact the words they use have – both face to face and over email
- Combat business jargon to help keep communication clear and simple
- Experience the power of listening, and understand that multitasking is a myth
- Explore their own personal impact, and work to be present in all interactions
- Demonstrate effective meeting management to optimise time and resources
- Understand how to support others who, perhaps, may struggle with business etiquette
Ultimately this course allows you to nurture a workforce that is better able to work smarter and accomplish both personal and company objectives in an efficient and collaborative way.
