The Conduct of the Boardroom
An effective meeting accomplishes goals, but a long meeting accomplishes wasted time. This is a sign of a meeting without an agenda and rules. Master the skills of being a great facilitator, achieving all objectives on your agenda and above all ending your meeting on time.
Putting Your Best Foot Forward on the Job
Everyday in our workplace we encounter people in a variety of business situations. Our mothers taught us “home training” but who taught us office etiquette? The way we interact in a business environment creates a lasting impression for our supervisor, coworkers and clients. Master the art of introduction, telephone, technology, etiquette and the unwritten rules of office etiquette which the leader never told you, but bases your evaluation upon.

This course will cover silverware placement, dining styles, and how to handle awkward situations.
