Overview

If you’re going into a new job—or entering the workforce for the first time—knowing the ground rules for properly navigating business life is essential to success. But to the uninitiated, the office can be a treacherous place—full of unspoken codes, silent expectations, and complicated hierarchies. The Unwritten Rules of the Workplace concisely explains business etiquette in down-to-earth language and shows businessmen how professional conduct and appearance can give them a significant competitive advantage.

Author Clint Greenleaf shares the fundamental skills necessary to impress colleagues and bosses, and emphasizes the importance of integrity and gentlemanliness in the workplace. He shares practical tips on professional dress—from what “business casual” really means to tips on tying ties and polishing shoes. He also lays out the rules for communicating and interacting in the office—including advice on dating a coworker, handling office politics, and creating professional emails, business letters, and thank-you notes. A chapter on gaining employment walks you through creating a superior resume and acing even the toughest interviews.

With the knowledge contained in The Unwritten Rules of the Workplace, any businessman can build his etiquette skills, develop an unbeatable professional demeanor, and feel confident walking into business situations of all kinds.
