Money Etiquette

por Paula

Hello, my friend! How are you? If you're out of time or "in a rush", go to the last paragraph of this text for a fast answer.

In times of immediate responses and connection 24 hours a day, talking about long-term transformation is a risk! But… we believe you can (and must!) dream big, and make a daily effort to get better every day. This is our mission - seeing you speaking English and being a Leader wherever you go. "The 5 Essential People Skills" was written by Dale Carnegie and its goal is to improve your people skills. In other words, to improve your relationships at work and at home.

"Personal money issues come up all the time in the workplace and it will be to your great benefit if you know how to handle them", says Dale Carnegie. Let's see 2 situations you might have while eating out with people from work:

1- Someone takes you out for a meal at a nice restaurant but leaves a very small tip. The service wasn't great, but not bad either. Can you add cash to the table?

2- Your coworkers are collecting money for someone's baby gift. You are new to the company and don't really know the recipient. Do you have to contribute as much as the senior staff?

The answer is no for both situations, but you can find a way to be friendly. If you're leaving the restaurant offer a cup of coffee, a dessert. For the baby gift you don't need to give anything, but if you can give a few dollars that's good. Just be discreet when it comes to money, my friend. Don't display what you have - what you are is much more important. Or not?
