“Manners are a Sensitive Awareness of the Feelings of Others"


Office etiquette and workplace professionalism is simply defined as basic manners in the world of business.

 It is important because it promotes better working relations and a professional culture. It also cuts down on stress and conflict between co-workers, which ultimately affects the company’s success. 

To understand what Office Etiquette and Professionalism is about ask yourself these questions;

    How do you treat  customers both internal and external?

    • How do you conduct yourself  the office environment?

    • How do you conduct yourself during meetings?

    • How do you conduct yourself during virtual meetings?

    • How do you give and receive a business card?

    • What kind of email messages do you send?

    • How do you conduct yourself on the telephone?

    • How do you conduct yourself on a dinning table?

    • How is your office dress code?

    • How do you conduct yourself during business social events?

This course will answer all above questions and provide you with more  tips of building a personal brand. 

Office etiquette and workplace professionalism is important because it creates a professional, mutually respectful atmosphere and improves communication, which helps an office serve as a productive which delights both external and internal customers. 

Many office etiquette is aligned  with basic human decency such as; be kind, don't steal, and avoid raising your voice. While these are some of the  obvious etiquette standards, there are a variety of other tips that will make the office environment better for everyone and this course will equip you with knowledge and understand of Office Etiquette and Professionalism.

If companies were to make etiquette a priority, it can be difficult to turn off at the end of the day. Well-mannered employees would just become well-mannered people. That benefits everyone, not just the company.

Despite the previous assumption that etiquette is common sense, developing specific rules and expectations is the best way in which a company can ensure that employees understand how they are to act in an office setting. 

By having written expectations, confusion can be avoided , and its important  to incorporate some training  such as this when it comes to etiquette so that employees are more prepared for proper work behavior.

"Rachel takes a keen interest in the achievement of her clients"

By: Ruth Maphorisa (Director of The Drive PTY LTD)

I am happy to recommend Rachel Nekati as a Coach and Trainer. I first met Rachel back in 2010 delivering a course of Emotional Intelligence and her impactful delivery has greatly contributed to who I am today. I have known Rachel as a Transformational Leader who has always lead by example. One of the greatest strengths Rachel has is that of following through and taking a keen interest in the achievements of her clients/mentees. One notices that all her deliveries are on transformation as opposed to maintenance. These are the qualities of an effective coach/trainer. I have since followed her and recently enrolled in her Just Eat Intermittent Fasting Program. Rachel continues to positively transform people's lives with her excellent Coaching and Training work.

by Pascaline Sefawe - Deputy CEO

I have known Rachel Nekati for over 20 years. I met her at the University of Botswana in 1992 when we stared our BCom degree. I found Rachel to be very energetic and very committed to her school work. We used to study together and was always amazed by her quest to success, especially at Such a young age. Our relationship continued building through out university and the highlight of that was when she started her training business. She did training for me and my team on emotional intelligence. This training changed my life and the way I do things in life. I became more self aware and self motivated. Rachel made a huge impact on me and my team and to this day I thank her. Rachel later introduced me to the IF lifestyle, an amazing lifestyle which I have adopted since 2018.

In summary Rachel has passion for teaching, she is very focused and committed. She puts all the effort in everything she does and impacts positively on everyone she interacts with. Rachel has the right energy!

"I am in Control Of My Emotions and Feelings"

Merrilyn Cathy Thuso - Operations Manager DMSS

Having Rachel as my coach was one of the best things that happened to me last year. Her course changed my the way I see life. Though it was focused on work, her lessons can also be applied in every aspect of our lives. I started being more organized, planned for my day the day before and that helped me to be more productive at work and life in general ( I actually feel overwhelmed if I dont do that now). My behaviour changed too, I used to feel I am entitled to how I feel (my mood) so that made it difficult for my colleagues to work with me sometimes, I guess even people in my life🤔 but anyway I got to learn to manage my feelings. I learned how to resolve conflict and from all this I got see the importance of the golden rule - put yourself in someone's shoes, do to others what you would like them to do to you. I learned alot from Rachel and I am grateful for the training I received from her.🙂

"I Feel Empowered and Excited About My Future"

- Hlengiwe Faku - CBT Life Coach and Training Consultant

I’ve just finished my stress and anxiety on-line self- coaching course by Rachel Nekati and Achievement Enterprises and what an amazing experience this was. I signed up for the on-line course because everything in my life was just too overwhelming. I was spiraling out of control; I had no control over my stress and anxiety. Prior to starting the course, I was not aware that the symptoms that I was presenting with “feeling panicky and sometimes out of control” were signs of stress and anxiety. These were made clear to me when I commenced with my on-line self- coaching course. Whilst I was busy with the course, it never felt like I was doing an on-line course – the support that I received from Rachel was amazing, she was with me all the way. It felt like she was physically with me holding my hand, readily available when I needed assistance and clarity What have been some of the benefits or take-outs that I’ve gotten from the course:  The course helped me manage my stress and anxiety better  The course has brought peace in my life, I feel quietness on the inside and I’m very calm  I can now understand my triggers and how to deal with them  The course made me realise that stress and anxiety is not something that I need to face on my own. There are people out there to support me.  I feel empowered and excited about my future  I have taken my life and the purpose I have in this life back I will highly recommend the course to anyone who wants to manage their stress and anxiety better and empower themselves. I’m really amazed and overwhelmed with the changes that I’m seeing in me. I just want to say, thank you very much Rachel for this life changing course. I wake up every day having a purpose and drive to do the things that I enjoy and love. Thank you for reintroducing me to my life again.

I know how to separate emotions from decision making. My life is different.

Etiquette is Respect, we are all Equal!

"We are all equal in the fact that we are all different. We are all the same in the fact that we will never be the same. We are united by the reality that all colours and all cultures are distinct and individual. We are harmonious in the reality that we are all held to this earth by the same gravity. We don’t share blood, but we share the air that keeps us alive". - C. JoyBell C.

Let me remind you these important unwritten rules!
