As the web trends more and more toward social networking, your personal brand is becoming more important. In the world of sharing, there is no easy way to know who is being exposed to you. The organizational brand is equally being driven by social networking with a twist. It is not only the brand of the company, but the corporate brand combined with the personal brand of its workforce. Simply put, employees are a company's greatest brand marketer.

It is difficult to talk about organizational or personal brands without discussing the importance of etiquette. Your brand is who you are and what you do. Etiquette is your rules for engagement within the scope of social and business environments.

Twenty years later, I still laugh at the time I was faced with the misalignment of my perception of social and business etiquette. Our team was returning from an off-site business meeting. The team consisted of four men and three women. Upon our return to the building, I arrived at the door first, so I stepped slightly to the side so that my colleague could open the door (remember this was 1996). To my surprise, my colleague pushed me out of the way, opened the door and entered the building! I was shocked! My boss, an elderly gentlemen opened the door and encouraged me to proceed him into the building. I am certain the look on my face was priceless. As I sat in my office contemplating what had just transpired (I know you are probably thinking it is not that serious) my boss came in and sat down. After a few minutes he said, "you were not wrong to assume that he would hold the door for you given your background and having worked with the military. A reasonable person would have made the same assumption. However in a business setting, you should not assume that social rules apply. It was then that I begin to pay attention to my environment as it relates to social and/or business etiquette. I admit the lines are blurred.

Fast forward twenty years and there is more attention being placed on business etiquette and its importance to an organization's brand. My colleague Crystal Bailey of the The Etiquette Institute of Washington has created a dynamic program to address the convergence of business and social etiquette. I am pleased to offer the program "The Art of Netiquette—where the internet meets etiquette" at our 2016 Authenticity Professional Women's on July 23rd.

How netiquette savvy are you? This month, I challenge you to focus on strengthening your brand. Assess your business and social media etiquette to ensure there is alignment with your corporate or personal brand. Don't hesitate to contact me to assist you on your journey.
