Business Etiquette

Men & Women

 

Men & Women

Women now occupy top positions in virtually every aspect of life – in business, in politics, in sports, in the clergy. A gentleman may find himself confused as to which of the longstanding rules of man-to-woman behavior are still applicable and appropriate. He may offer certain special considerations to the women in his life, but he avoids even the slightest hint of condescension when doing so. He knows that his basic concern is to treat other people considerately and courteously, at all times and in all situations.

n  When introducing a man and a woman, a gentleman always introduces the man to the woman. For example, he says, “Irma, I’d like you to meet Fred Blastich. He works in our Sioux City office.”

n  A gentleman always opens the door for a woman, unless he happens to be the one with his arms full of packages.

n  A gentleman helps a lady with her chair, whether she is standing or sitting down.

n  In a business situation, a gentleman never refers to a woman as “Honey” or “Sweetie” – not even if he means to be amusing

n  Unless he is confident that a woman wishes to be referred to as “Miss” or “Mrs.,” he refers to her as “Ms.”
