Business is all about people and basic human qualities. With fast developing technology and rapidly changing business norms, people change and hence a definite change in the professional and personal behaviour is the need of the hour.
There are some basic standards required to be followed within the business platform. It does not need a special mention because these are basic human qualities followed in our everyday life but needs a little sharpening while at the business floor. A simple pat by the higher up is a boost to the employee and such gestures will result in happy employees working merrily towards the success of the organisation.
- Working in teams is one of the main qualities of a business executive. A team gives an employee the confidence of taking a sturdy decision productively and he can execute it with the strong support and co-operation of his team members.
- Being very careful while writing and speaking is another very essential requirement. The only way of business communication is either in words or by speech. An executive must be very careful while speaking to the other employees and higher-ups or while writing an email. The language to be used must be formal, plain, simple and should clearly communicate what he or she intends to. It should not be rude and unprofessional. Care to be excercised while speaking or writing official communications and the language and slang used should be very polite.
- Being very friendly in the working environment is very essential but this does not mean that you can walk into other`s cabin unannounced. So it is for correspondence. Reading a colleague’s personal or professional communiqués is a big no-no. It is always advisable that you send out an email before you knock other`s doors intimating in advance your visit or or atleast take time in giving a call before visiting them. This shows professionalism and the other person will also not have a surprise guest to his desk.
