Quick Etiquette Tip: Listen and Learn
A very wise young woman was an event planner. She had been in the job for a short period of time but she spoke enthusiastically about how much she listened and learned from her staff who had worked as event planners for years. Listening and learning helped her to progress and to establish a good rapport with the staff.
When you start a job, spend some time listening and learning, then put forth your brilliant ideas. No matter what your degree is in, anyone who has spent more time working for the company or firm has more experience than you. Listen and learn from them. Learn the corporate or firm culture – get to know the people you work with and how they do things. If you do, your ideas have a better chance of being well received.
