Overview

What's the best way to ask a colleague to refrain from smoking in the office? What's the proper protocol for exchanging gifts with colleagues and clients? Is it okay to address the CEO by his or her first name? These and dozens of other business-etiquette questions are answered by trusted etiquette expert Marjabelle Young Stewart and her coauthor Marian Faux in this indispensable handbook for office life in the nineties.

More than a collection of dos and don'ts, Executive Etiquette in the New Workplace is a practical and reassuring sourcebook that offers businesspeople at every rung of the corporate ladder the guidelines they need for handling the increasingly complex relationships of office life with confidence, grace, and style.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Have you ever wondered what to say to an unmarried woman who has just announced that she is pregnant? Or what equipment you need for a successful buffet? Or how to deal with other people's underhandedness in the office? Answers to these and many other workplace dilemmas can be found in this book by Stewart, the author of 15 books on etiquette, and Faux, who writes on woman's issues. The authors provide a comprehensive catalog of appropriate methods of dealing with workplace issues. Also included is a section on cross-cultural questions. Although the book is directed toward executives, most white-collar workers could benefit from the ideas presented here; most of us are not always sure which fork to use. Recommended for public libraries.-- Joshua Cohen, Mid-Hudson Lib. System, Poughkeepsie, N . Y .
