Tips on Complimenting Someone

Complimenting people on their appearance is perfectly correct if the compliment is sincere. At the office, however, you’re best to compliment the work, not the clothes. When giving or receiving a compliment, keep in mind the following points:
  • Never ask people where they got their clothes or what they cost.
  • Don’t talk about what you paid for clothes or brag about designer labels.
  • If someone compliments you, it’s not necessary to return the compliment.
The most important thing to remember about business etiquette is that so much of it is based on rank. If you remember this, common sense and a cool head should get you through most situations.
