November Tips For Communication & Image Success

Tip for Organizations:

Question:
We send holiday cards to our clients. How can our associates personalize the cards?

Answer:
In most companies, cards are signed by the staff. To personalize add another step by jotting down a note specifically to the client or customer that you have or would like to have a relationship with. In the note, suggest a lunch, breakfast or coffee meeting for the New Year.

Communication Question:

Question:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     How can you ensure you are heard during a conference call on speaker?

Answer:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        If you do not have to speak louder, you must speak slowly and begin with the topic or question being discussed. Ask questions afterwards to verify you were heard.

 

Presence  Question:

Question:
How soon can you start wearing clothes, sweaters or ties with holiday designs?

Answer:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Even though we are experiencing holiday decorations, try to wait until after Thanksgiving, especially this year, since it is so early. The only exceptions are non-western seasonal holidays. I would definitely check with the organization about any policies addressing holiday type clothing.
