"It was a pleasure attending your Etiquette and Protocol Training last Thursday. Thank you very much for your enlightening lecture and it has relieved me a lot as being a new hire in this highly-productive team!
As you have pointed out, sitting in the corner of the office is somewhat a barrier that could easily isolate me from the team. And the only way to break the ice is to actively create the opportunities that enhance mutual understanding.
At the department luncheon table, the team automatically recalled your etiquette class and had a lot of fun in keeping an eye on each other's manners (which also discovered many interesting stories and experiences). Learning to relax and being participative, I felt it became much easier than I had expected to, again, be one of them.
Next week, with more projected interfacing with my colleagues, I'm planning to talk more and learn more from discussions with the team. And I will bring you sm update (and perhaps more questions) soon. 🙂
Thank you and wish you a wonderful week!" J.L. Recent USC Graduate
