ittle etiquette errors can diminish your image and, eventually, your power. So watch your Ps and Qs, and be careful to
Recognize subordinates when passing them in a hall and receptionists when entering offices.
Silence your cell phone and beeper during meetings.
Take invitations from subordinates seriously. Never ignore them or fail to show up after accepting.
Return phone calls or e-mails within a reasonable time.
Make an adequate apology when you hurt someone. If the gaffe was serious, a handwritten note, and even a small gift, is not too much.
Listen to subordinates and make time to talk to them.
