Greeting and farewell

Decision to shake hands in greeting or to choose its other form – belongs to the boss. Our task is to match it. If I say “good morning” to us, we respond in the same way, if he shakes hands — handshake. Savoir-vivre says, That the decision on the form of greeting belongs to the person in a higher position. The issue with bowing is different -. person in a lower position bows first. When it comes to saying goodbye – The signal always comes out from the boss. Remember that in business, the boss is the boss, regardless of age or gender. So if after the boss-man meeting and the female employee leave the room, then the female employee should let the boss pass – holding the door for him, Whereas when the same situation involves people of two genders In equivalent positions – watching the previous video, you certainly know what to do – A man lets a woman pass.
