In business, people have to deal in person with all kinds of people. When talking to people within your company who don’t speak your language, you may have to use English; these people may be colleagues or co-workers – who may work with you in your own department, in another part of the building or in another branch. And you may also have to deal with people from outside the organization: clients, suppliers, visitors and members of the public. Moreover, these people may be friends or strangers – people of your own age, or people who are younger or older than you.
The relationship you have with a person determines the kind of language you use. For example, it’s not appropriate to say ‘Hi, how are you!’ when meeting the Managing Director of a large company or to say’Good morning, it’s a great pleasure to meet you’when being introduced to a person you’ll be working closely with in the same team.
People usually form an impression of you from the way you speak and behave – not just from the way you do your work. People in different countries have different ideas of what sounds friendly, polite or sincere – and of what sounds rude or unfriendly! Good manners in your culture may be considered bad manners in another. Sometimes your body language, gestures and expressions may tell people more about you than the words you use.
