Cynthia Lett, Executive Director of the International Society of Protocol & Etiquette Professionals and The Lett Group and Jennifer Brown, Owner of PeopleTactics, LLC, discuss the nuances of business etiquette and appropriate social skills to the success of businesses in general and small businesses in particular. We will focus on specific social skills that affect employee job satisfaction and thus lengthy retention with the organization. The cost of losing an employee due to interpersonal conflicts is high and the public relations factor is even higher and more critical.

Cynthia shares 3 keys:
On beginning your entrepreneurial journey: “Write down that vision. So keep a goal of what you want to be working with because it's no fun to compromise if you have to compromise because of financial restraints or anything. In those situations you have to be creative in how to keep your own ideal about whatever your vision is and your quality parameter. Maybe you do have to make less wine at the beginning. You do want to become a 5,000 case winery but start slow so that you can build to that and maintain those quality parameters that you're thinking of.”
On branding your product: “. . . it's not always easy; but to not compromise the quality. And when I mean quality I'm not just talking about the wine product. I'm talking about the quality of your staff, the quality of your suppliers.”
On staying small vs. building an empire: "The term I use for myself is you can get kind of caught up in empire building, and just because we could sell 15,000 cases – we’d chosen personally not to. So right now we’re plateaued and have been for about 3 years at 6500 cases, which means our building is really full. And it’s as full as we want to go and you can stay hands-on still.”
