As much as you may want to make your business inviting and accessible to your customers, there may be times when you need to put up a barrier for your business' safety and protection. If you are closed for the day, but still want people to be able to view into your store's windows, you might get the protection and visibility you want by putting up shutters over your exterior windows. These protective exteriors allow people to look in, but not gain access to the store. They also could help your company retain its appearance without causing it to look disorganized or messy.
Consulting with Professionals
You may want to know more about how to choose the right style for your business. One of the considerations that you may be required to make involves what size you want to put up over the outside windows. Measuring for these coverings can seem complicated. When you consult with people who know more about these fixtures, you could be told how to measure and then order the size you need.
You also might want shutters to be in a certain color or style. When you are going for a neutral, uniform look, you may choose white or off-white. The color blends in and is not obtrusive. It also can be used throughout the years if you redecorate the outside of your company.
However, when you do have a certain color scheme in mind, you might consult with the people from the company to discover if any colors are available other than white. You may choose colors that best suit the outside decorations. This option may allow you to represent your brand and still keep your customer base.
Finding Out More
One aspect that people think about when deciding whether or not to invest in these fixtures involves how well they will stand up over the course of a few years. You might not want to have to replace them anytime soon. As you shop online, you could discover what materials they are made out of and decide if the materials suit your purpose.
You also may wonder about the pricing for them. Business owners sometimes have to work on a budget that accommodates their cash flows. Rather than overspend your budget on these fixtures, you might select styles that are affordable and also will serve the purpose.
The host should not only call with the initial invitation, but he or his secretary should be sure to confirm the meeting a day or two before. What do hosts do? Hosts select the restaurant and make the appropriate reservations, arrange for payment of the meal (whoever profits from the meeting should pay for the meal), and don't draw attention to your own or someone else's etiquette mistake.
For the most part, start your meal with the flatware on the outside first and work your way in. The dessert utensils are supposed to be above the plate. Your cups and glasses are on your upper right while your bread plate is on your upper left and salad plate on your lower left.
The napkin goes in your lap immediately after sitting down. A luncheon napkin gets completely unfolded while a dinner napkin gets unfolded only half way. And please, ladies, don't wipe your lipstick on a clean napkin. If you're eating something especially messy, such as spaghetti or lobster, you can hold your napkin up to your chest, but don't ever tuck it into your collar. Dirty napkins get put on your chair when leaving in the middle of a meal, but on the table at the end of a meal.
Important Things to Do
Spoon your soup toward the rear of the bowl, not the front. Cut and eat one bite at a time. Break off and butter one bite of bread at a time. Remove your utensils when passing your plate for seconds. Only lipstick may be applied at the table, but it must be done discreetly. Empty sugar and butter wrappers get put on the bread and butter plate or under the edge of your dinner plate.
Important Things to Not Do
Never begin eating until the guest of honour takes his first bite. Don't look across the rim of your glass or cup while drinking. Don't lean over your food, but instead bring the food up to your mouth. Don't put your briefcase, pocketbook, files, or anything else onto the table when they are not in use, but instead put them on the floor out of the server's way. Don't sprinkle salt or pepper on the food before tastin
As neuroscience increasingly finds its way into the workplace, and we learn more about human behaviour, what real difference can it make for employees?
At board level, the value of understanding more about decision-making and human behaviour is easy to see: when you are trying to shape organizational culture, introduce change initiatives, and encourage strong leadership, the workings of the brain provide valuable insight.
But how does this filter down to ground level? What can neuroscience teach the 'average' employee?
The boss-employee relationship
One important area that it can shed light on is the relationship with one's boss; many of us could do with a little assistance in that area.
After all, it is often this key relationship that dictates performance, duration of employment in an organisation, and career progression.
Mistakes are often made from both sides - partly because a culture of management rather than leadership has dominated in many organisations for some time now. The focus has been more on managing performance than leading people.
Neuroscience is helping to change this focus, as leadership considers the needs of people in shaping their behaviour, and thus their performance. When this filters down through the team, there can be a corresponding shift on how we view our bosses - with a deeper understanding of the pressures they are under as human beings.
Letting snap judgments harm your career
Many of us make snap judgments about whether we like someone or not. This doesn't change in the workplace, but it's surprising how many of us let this damage our career path.
Neuroscience helps us to identify common needs of all people, so that we develop a greater understanding of why someone may act in a certain way. We can withhold judgments better and become more tolerant - which, in the long run, may mean that we are able to exert more influence in the relationship and be more likely to steer it towards outcomes that are more beneficial for us.
It can teach us not to rush into potentially conflict-inducing situations; often it's better to stand back, try to reign in the subconscious mind that may be racing to make a judgment, and then consider your response a little more. Your boss is probably doing the same with you, after all.
