Business Etiquette: Benefits of an Entrepreneurial Spirit at the Office
Business Etiquette Benefits of an Entrepreneurial Spirit at the Office: Have you given thought to the benefits of your team tapping into their entrepreneurial spirit at the office?
Promoting an entrepreneurial spirit is a two-way street. You and your company benefit because you have a high functioning team. The company has a consistent flow of business ideas and a highly engaged workforce that is consistently producing. The employee feels a sense of freedom. They are using their gifts. Your team gets to utilize a muscle that is their own.
Benefits of a Being Entrepreneurial at the Office:
Responsibility | Ownership
If you foster and encourage an entrepreneurial spirit, your team is most likely to take on more responsibility and ownership of a project.
If creativity is not on your list of traits for an ideal employee, add it now. Every HR manager I speak with stresses the importance of being creative. Hard skills are key, but if your team is not creative and given the room to express themselves and their ideas, then you have group that will be stagnate. Who wants that at the office?
Allowing your team to take on a project they have initiated gives them the opportunity to practice a leadership role.
All professionals need soft skills. According to a study by LinkedIn, 57% of leaders surveyed say “soft skills”are the skills they would like their employees to have and use.

About Lisa Richey, founder of The American Academy of Etiquette
I bet you know first-hand the issues that many companies are facing in the workplace. The lack of conversation skills, maybe an employee doesn’t understand they have a certain reputation and need guidance to tweak and change it, or employees are not living up to the stated dress code. You may have a strong desire for your staff to be “likeable “or want them to connect with the many generations that are your vendors, employees and clients.
HR professionals and sales organizations, contact me to speak on topics such as personal branding, how to build stronger and better relationships with clients and colleagues, ways to connect the multi-generations that make up the workforce and of course how to dine with ease and grace during a business meal.
Many of my clients comment that my delivery is engaging, informative and makes an immediate difference within an organization.
From Portland, Oregon to the Middle East, I have delivered my popular programs to hospitals, financial firms, universities and management consulting companies. I have helped thousands of people to become more polished, professional and powerful.
My broad base of clients includes Deloitte, Ernest & Young, Siemens, Starz Channel and The Ministry of Bahrain. The audiences have ranged from a group of 12 up to 250. I am available for corporate in-house training or conferences.
