Etiquette refers to good manners
required by an individual to find
a place in the society. It is impor-
tant for an individual to behave
appropriately in public to earn
respect and appreciation.
One must learn to maintain the
decorum of the work place. It is
important to respect one s organ-
isation to expect the same in
return. No one would ever take
you seriously if do not behave well
at the workplace.
Meetings are an important part
of corporates where employees sit
together on a common platform,
exchange their views and opinions
and reach to a solution benefitting
the organisation and mutually
acceptable to all.
Meeting etiquette refers to codes
of behaviour an individual ought
to follow while attending meetings
and discussions at the workplace.
Let us go through some meeting
etiquette in detail:
Try to find out what the meeting
is all about. Understand the impor-
tance of the meeting. Never go
blank. Employees should do all the
ground work before attending
meetings to ensure maximum par-
ticipation from their end. Prepare
notes in advance.
Never attend meetings without
a notepad and pen. It is practically
not possible for an individual to
remember each and every thing
discussed at the time of meeting.
A notepad helps in jotting down
the important points for future
Always keep your cell phone on
the silent or vibrator mode. Cell
phones ringing in the middle of
meetings and seminars are considered
rude and unprofessional. This might
insult others sitting in the same room
as well as break the pace of the meet-
Do not attend phone calls during
meetings unless it is an emergency. It
is bad manners to do the same.
Superiors must create an agenda
before every meeting. The agenda must
be circulated among all employees for
them to prepare in advance. Meetings
should not be conducted just for the
sake of it. It is important to have well
defined plans. Make a list of issues to
be discussed at the time of meeting.
Make sure you do not deviate from the
key points. Keep the meetings short.
Never be late for meetings. Going
late for a meeting is something which
is not expected out of a professional.
Chewing gum during meetings is
childish and must be avoided.
Be a good listener. Listen to what
others have to say. Wait for your turn
Sit wherever you find a place. Do
not run here and there.
Do not enter the meeting room once
the meeting has already begun It dis-
Avoid taking your cups of coffee or
tea to meeting rooms unless and until
advised by superiors.
Fiddling with pen or notepad is one
of the major distractions in meetings.
One must concentrate and stay alert.
Be an attentive listener. Do not yawn
even if you find the meeting boring.
The one chairing the meeting must
speak loud and clear. It is essential to
take care of the pitch and tone.
Meetings ought to be interactive and
allow employees to come up with their
suggestions and valuable feedback. A
question answer round must be kept
at the end for employees to clear their
Once the meeting is over, minutes
of the meeting must be prepared and
circulated across all departments for
them to take necessary action
Use whiteboards, projectors, graphs,
pointers, slides for better clarity.
Do not convert the meeting room
into a battle ground. Speak politely and
do respect your colleagues.
Never attend meetings in casuals.
Follow a professional dress code.
