From ethics columnist and Harvard lecturer Jeffrey L. Seglin, discover practical tips for succeeding professionally by succeeding socially.

Practicing business etiquette doesn’t mean pretending to be someone you’re not. Brimming with practical, up-to-date tips on minding your business manners, The Simple Art of Business Etiquette guides you through the tricky territory of office etiquette with real-life stories and workplace scenarios.

  • Become attuned to body language (Don’t gawk at others during meetings or at any other time. It’s creepy.)
  • Engage in thoughtful introductions (Don’t guess at someone’s name if you don’t remember it.)
  • Practice proper e-mail etiquette (Do you really want to be the jerk who sends annoying e-mails around the office?)
  • Curtail office conflicts (Never punch anyone in the workplace. Never.)
  • Exhibit workplace sensitivity (Listen to your coworkers without cutting them off.)
  • Plus, decode the fifteen most commonly used phrases in business.

The Simple Art of Business Etiquette proves that minding your manners goes a long way toward successfully advancing your career.
