Sadly, a business meeting dinner is not about the food…it’s a meeting…with food. Avoid arriving at the restaurant feeling ravenous…it’s hard to concentrate on the task at hand when your stomach is grumbling. Be a mindful diner and try not to finish well before everyone else – pace yourself. It is more about the conversation and networking than the meal.
A little trick for building your EQ…The next time you get frustrated with someone, ask a simple question: Do you believe the person is doing the very best that they can? An empathy builder for sure…and a clear path to being more accepting of others…very good arsenal for your manners bucket.
