Business Etiquette:

Your manners are always under examination, and by committees little suspected, awarding or denying you very high prizes when you least think of it.”
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Good office etiquette is an essential means of showing courtesy…The custom of salutations, of visiting, of introductions, writing letters, and the like, are all strictly defined, and they are enforced like our laws

Attire Etiquette:

You are what you wear – communicate what you want to be seen as. 80% of any communication is visual, so work on your visual communication to create the message needed for the role you are aiming at. Many have discounted the powers of visual cues and have suffered.
The knowledge of being well-dressed — not necessarily in a very expensive attire, but becomingly and suitably dressed, does give one an ease of manner, and an unconsciousness of self, which can never be obtained, when one is conscious of looking badly, i.e., dressed in clothing which is out of date, or fits very badly, or does not blend harmoniously with one’s complexion, height, or figure.

Body Language:

Actions Speak Louder than words. Be conscious of your body language. Is your body language in harmony with what you say? “When your words don’t match the signals that your body is sending, others will believe what they see more than what they hear. Understanding body language will enhance your professionalism.”
Research has shown that from 50% to as much as 100% of your message is communicated through body language.
