[053] Business Etiquette Tips for the Workplace: Dos and Don’ts for Job Success
Show Notes

Do you want to learn the top business etiquette tips for the workplace in 2021? Business etiquette is an integral part of a well-functioning office. Since Covid-19 and the related events of 2020, many of the traditional “rules” of business etiquette have changed. As many businesses return to the office in 2021, there will be a lot of confusion around the etiquette of interacting with your colleagues and coworkers.

You may be unsure whether you can or should shake hands. You may find that people are more stressed and communicate with you in an aggressive way. How do you deal with that? And then there is your professional outfit and how do you transition away from the more casual, work from home outfits.

All of these topics and more I talk about in this week’s podcast episode and related YouTube video below.

In this podcast episode (and related YouTube video below), you will learn about:

  • the shift we have seen in the world of work in 2020 and 2021.
