In this Short Talk episode Judith Germain speaks to Kristi Spencer who is the Founder of The Polite Company about etiquette in business. As a graduate of The Emily Post Institute Kristi shares her beliefs and how leaders can progress once they understand the nuance of etiquette that fuels relationships. How does etiquette empower us and still be culturally appropriate?

In this conversion they explore exactly what is etiquette in business, is it still needed and whether it's needed in virtual meetings.


Maverick leadership is all about thinking outside the box and challenging the status quo. It's about having the courage to take risks and the confidence to lead in a way that is authentic and genuine.

But amplifying your influence as a leader isn't just about having a strong vision or a big personality. It's also about having the right leadership capability and being able to execute on your ideas and plans.

The consequences of not having the right level of influence as a leader can be significant. Without the ability to inspire and motivate others, you may struggle to achieve your goals and make a real impact.

How Influential Are you? Take the scorecard at and see.
