Business Etiquette in the World of Architecture

Learning how to present yourself, your company, and your work product is more complicated than you might think. This session provides a solid basis for understanding not only the customary code of polite behavior in society but also the particular nuances at play among architecture, engineering, and construction professions. Don’t let lapses in etiquette stifle your career.

At this program we will discuss how a courteous, sincere, and helpful attitude builds respect among all employees and managers within an architect’s office.  We will Illustrate why promptness and purposefulness are key attributes when scheduling meetings, making agendas, and assigning tasks.  We will demonstrate a personal presentation style that is professional but personable, and attentive to others in order to answer questions appropriately.  And finally you will learn how to appraise the dangers in making exaggerated and unsubstantiated claims about personal knowledge, accomplishments, and performance.
