The Importance of Etiquette

Today’s modern professional is well-educated, a clear thinker and a technologically astute person able to connect instantaneously with offices, colleagues, clients and databases around the world. Yet often that same person may be unprepared or less than confident in the etiquette and protocol skills needed for business or social interaction in today’s world.

Somehow in acquiring the knowledge and expertise required to perform demanding and complex assignments, many of us have lost the personal skills required to communicate and interact with others. We fear that we will stumble in some simple way that will affect our ability to advance in our profession.

The world has changed. Technology has transformed much of our interaction with our fellow human beings. But manners still matter. The ability to make others comfortable in our presence has actually grown more important as we find ourselves engaged internationally with people who place great emphasis on the style and symbolism of personal behavior.

Etiquette alone won’t guarantee your success but it will help to make the difference between you and your competitor.

Every seminar offered by The Protocol School of Virginia is custom designed to meet the needs of the client. Suggested programs include, but are not limited to the areas of Business Etiquette, Dining Etiquette, Electronic Etiquette and International Protocol.

Within each broad area are many specific skills that can be included that will enhance the self-confidence of the professional. These skills improve their ability to communicate with their clients, supervisors and peers. As the individual’s confidence and performance improves, so will the bottom line.

Check out our four core seminar segments, but remember based on your specific needs, we can custom build a program for you unique business.
