Business Etiquette

It’s not about rules: it’s about respect!™

In the business world, productivity inhibitors such as a high employee turnover, poor team performance and low engagement are often associated with a lack of self-awareness and professionalism.

At Rispetto Consulting®, we help our clients focus on how to work, leveraging the principles of Business Etiquette.  These principles lead to enhanced employee experience, elevated customer relations and efficiency in communications.

Many aspects of business contribute to building a positive brand and ensuring organizations maintain a welcoming and lasting culture.

Our expertise will help you achieve:

  • respectful behavior to make others feel at ease and avoid toxic work environments;
  • timely and productive meetings;
  • effective internal and external communications and proper use of social media;
  • service-oriented mindset and governance.

Rispetto’s services include consulting, coaching, and training to provide solutions for improving individual and team performance.

Cross-cultural Management and International Protocol

We help you navigate different cultures

The globalized world demands a higher understanding of cultural commonalities and differences. Failing to perceive cultural norms may result in an inability to conduct business with a certain community or within a certain location.

Who may benefit from Rispetto’s expertise:

  • Expatriates, or professionals relocating to different regions, who must acquire an understanding of social norms and peculiar business practices to ensure a successful transition;
  • Enterprises exploring new markets, which need to know the customer base, workforce and society at their destination;
  • Leaders of multigenerational and multicultural teams, who often hold different beliefs and display diverse work styles;
  • Business travelers, whose skills must include cultural awareness and mastery of the rules of the road – both spoken and unspoken.

While it is not feasible to know all aspects of every culture, our minds may be trained to identify cultural differences, and swiftly adjust to them. At Rispetto Consulting®, we assist individuals and organizations operating in the international arena with:

  • Cultural Intelligence (CQ) assessments and training
  • The different styles of communication across cultures
  • Adjusting to new environments
  • The most common biases and misconceptions, and how to avoid them
  • The standards of management beyond borders

Rispetto’s advisory services and speaking events will help speed up the cultural adjustment process and give you an edge in international business and in life.
