While perhaps it’s not the most common development topic, manners at work really matter. How we conduct ourselves within the workplace, as well as during our interactions with others, play a significant role in our overall success. When we are courteous and considerate of those around us, people tend to enjoy working with us, are more helpful, and become more engaged in our projects and assignments. This leads to greater personal success due to the supportive team around us. For this course you will review the Workplace Manners and their definitions. You will then assess your current actions and behaviors and identify what you should continue doing, what you should do less of, and what you could do more of. By completing this course, you will know how to evaluate your level of manners and courtesy at work. Course Result: Evaluate your level of manners and courtesy at work. This course has been approved for 1 hour of PDU credit from PMI (Project Management Institute).
