Power Etiquette – because referrals come from people who think you like them.

1: There are two bodies of etiquette

  • Social Etiquette
  • Business Etiquette

The rules are different based on the context.

2: There are three forms of etiquette

  • Protocol – forms of ceremony observed by diplomats
  • Manners – Social deportment, behavior and conduct
  • Courtesy – My use of manners to show my self respect, and my respect and regard for others.

3: Concept: equal and fair are not synonyms

  • Equal is for groups
  • Fair is for individuals

4: Principles: communication is what the listener does

  • Good news to groups — bad news one-on-one
  • Good news for eyes    — bad news for ears
  • Good word of mouth is for ego — bad word of mouth is for protection
Purpose: Equal or Fair
  • Arrive late = no InfoMinute
  • Stand when talking at PowerCore; everywhere else.
  • How much time do I have to respond —
    to an invitation, to a task?
  • When do I owe a thank you?
