Everyone has qualms when they’re starting out in the business world. Even senior managers who have excelled in the workplace for decades confess to feeling nervous and unsure of how to behave when faced with unknown situations or dealing with strangers whom they know nothing about other than a brief biography of their corporate achievements.
Everyone who goes to work wants to feel at ease and socially comfortable in their surroundings. An executive who is confident and at ease makes those around him feel comfortable too.
The fact that others perceive successful executives as easy to get along with and interesting to be around, has very little to do with expensive designer suits or the position they hold. Rather, the polished executive is defined by something as simple as good manners, ease of communication and confident demeanour.
