Etiquette for Success: Workplace You’ll learn the basics first, including how to present yourself well by means of cleanliness, proper dressing, and proper manners. This book will also cover effective ways to organize your time while at work. Businesses care about productivity, so timekeeping, efficiency, and using a personal diary are all helpful habits. You’ll be taught how to communicate and interact with colleagues, clients, customers, and suppliers in a more effective and respectful way. This helps you understand others better and helps you be understood by others, too. Things in life—and especially at work—aren’t always smooth sailing.

Finally, you’ll learn about appropriate use of office equipment, including work phones, email, computers, fax machines, and more.
