Workplace Professionalism & Business Etiquette Training


“I can’t believe s/he’s wearing that.”

“Doesn’t s/he know that is a seriously career limiting move?”

“S/he was on his/her phone during a client meeting.”

Open spaces.  Working virtually.  Headsets.  Slack.  Phones in meetings.  Social media.

In today’s rapidly evolving culture, the definition of what constitutes professionalism varies widely amongst industries and amongst organizations.  The benefits of an increasingly informal workplace are many – greater flexibility, creativity and expression.  At the same time, there is a bigger risk of unintentional missteps that lead to long-lasting reputational damage.
