Course Overview

Business etiquette is about building relationships with other people and not about rules and regulations. It is related to providing basic social comfort and creating an environment through effective and improved communication. Etiquette is a collective term for a set of norms and conventions that govern social behaviour and is required in societal relations.

However, it is not limited to society but extends to relations within a social or professional group. It is also used to refer to a code of ethics prescribed in some profession like medical or legal. Protocol, in the larger sense, can be defined as the etiquette of diplomacy and affairs of the state. At a national or international level, it constitutes the code of behaviour, ceremonial forms, courtesies, procedures, etc. accepted and required for interactions between heads of states, government and/or diplomats.

The ultimate aim of protocols is to avoid confrontation and disharmony. Business protocol, however, is not as strictly formal but is an important aspect of relationship building within an organisation or between two or more organisations.

Collectively, the terms ‘protocol’ and ‘etiquette’ refer to a set of rules, conventions and/or norms that govern the behaviour of people in general and specific situations. However, they differ in their sphere of influence and nature of rules.

Good business etiquette improve organisational culture and have a profound impact on the success and growth of the organisation. They help build stronger relationships and demonstrate confidence. They also promote cross-cultural awareness and respect. The success of an organisation is determined by the business etiquette that employees follow.

Lack of awareness or support or insufficient training and focus related to etiquette and protocol can be detrimental to the progress and image of an organisation. Cross-cultural differences act as the major challenge for developing and demonstrating good business etiquette and protocol. For any organisation intending to be influential and successful, one of the primary focus areas should be training employees on good business etiquette and protocol.
