Supporting HR’s Code of Conduct. Social Skills, Respectful Communication and Professional Workplace Manners

8 Essential Business Skills; For Everyone From the Top Floor to Basement Level Whether you work behind-the-scenes or front and center, possessing basic business skills is essential. Why? Opportunities and professional image. When you lack skills or confidence, you may be overlooked for a promotion or career advancement conferences or training. Or, you may not have the confidence to seek or accept career opportunities. That is why possessing even the basic skills and becoming comfortable with them is key for career growth. 1. 2. 3. 4.

Know how to introduce yourself with confidence: State your first and last name, clearly and with a smile. Master the handshake: This includes maintaining eye contact during the handshake. Let your posture show your enthusiasm: In other words, stand up straight. Focus on the person with whom you are speaking: It is considered very rude to look around or check your phone. 5. Adjust your attitude: If you’re bored or tired, it is better to excuse yourself than to show it. 6. Don’t complain, blame, whine, or lecture: This will only make people avoid you and decrease your chances for leadership positions. 7. Stand out with courtesy: Always use these phrases, “Thank you.” “Please.” “You’re welcome.” 8. Be mindful of what your attire says: Lack of effort on how you present yourself, can be construed as a reflection of your work. By mastering and implementing these simple and time-honored skills, you can be a “leader” in the position you are in right now. If you believe people, coworkers, or management don’t notice, or maybe your attitude is “This is who I am,” challenge your belief by changing your attitude and trying out some of the above skills to see if there is a difference. Not only for your self-confidence but how others perceive and treat you.

THINGS TO DO

bayarea.com Campbell – dine-in Theaters open soon!

“We call it stealth mode because the servers will all be dressed in black,” Brandon said. “We’re even training them to speak quietly because we want to be spot on when we open.” Chef Jaime Arteaga, one of about 100 employees hired by the cinemas, plans to offer a diverse menu that includes flatbreads, panini sandwiches, fried pickles, crispy chickpeas and salads. The kitchen is connected to the theaters in Pizza My Heart’s former spot.

By Judy Peterson peterson@bayareanewsgroup.com

The former Boswell’s bar is now the Cedar Room, which offers a full bar, including 22 beers on tap.

The phrase “dinner and a movie” will soon take on new meaning when the Pruneyard Shopping Center’s seven movie houses reopen as dine-in luxury movie theaters.

“We’ll focus on California beBar patrons can order food from the kitchen, watch sports on two flat screen TVs, play pool and listen to live music come this summer.

The former Camera 7 Cinemas in Campbell drew the curtain last April.

The Cedar Room’s walls are covered in wood, much of it reclaimed from Boswell’s, Johnson said.

But a new movieplex, the Pruneyard Cinemas, has risen in its place and could open as“The best case would be a March 28 opening, knock on wood,” co-owner Jack NyBlom said. “But that would be just for movies.”

The multiplex has two large theaters that seat more than 100 and five smaller ones that seat 60 or fewer. Brandon thinks the smaller theaters will be popular birthday party or corporate event spacesers and wines,” Cedar Room Manager Drew Johnson said. “We’ll also have a bright cocktail menu, with tropical- inspired ‘tiki’ drinks and classic cocktails with a twist.”

Nyblom plans to mark the occasion by showing Steven Spielberg’s “Ready Player One” and the PG-13-rated “Isle of Dogs.” Construction workers were busy late last week installing lobby carpeting and adding other finishing touches. “We can see the finish line,” Cinema and Event Director Mary Brandon said. “We’re excited to offer people food service at their seats. You’ll be given a menu when you come in and then a server will come to your seat to take your order. It will be delivered before the movie starts.”

New in Los Gatos: The Palms restaurant takes over Palacio space

Another button activates the reclining seats that come with foot rests. Little tray tables with big cup holders swing in front of the seats for easy dining. early as next week. Servers will be trained to take and deliver orders in stealth mode, Brandon said, so movie-goers aren’t disturbed.

The Palms restaurant is housed in a graceful 1891 Queen Anne Victorian on Santa Cruz Avenue, Los Gatos

The stately building on Santa Cruz Avenue is now home to The Palms, a new restaurant with a Pacific Rim focus. For several years, an upscale Mexican place, Palacio, had taken up residence in this circa 1891 building. Before that it was the Michelin-starred Trevese and before that, one of California’s popular Chart House restaurants. At The Palms, starters on chef Andres Chevez’s inaugural menu will include fresh oysters, spicy calamari, ahi or salmon poke bowls and chicken yakitori, plus salads and lobster bisque as the house soup. For entrees, fresh fish and locally sourced vegetables will be given the Pac Rim treatment. Chilean pan-seared sea bass, for example, will be served in a miso-ginger broth with stir-fried vegetables and udon noodles. Meat eaters will find a Wagyu bavette cut (or New York, filet or rib eye steak) with glazed rainbow baby carrots, as well as a Kobe beef burger. In keeping with the theme, signature cocktails will include On the Rum, an Island Mule and a number called “Forget Mary Ann; where’s Ginger?” On the beer list are Kona Longboard lager, Ballast Point Sculpin and the Lost Coast Great White ale. Details: Dinner will be served from 5 to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, until 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday and until 8 p.m. Sunday at 115 N. Santa Cruz Ave. Details, reservations: www.thepalms95030.com

The first restaurant from the Southern California duo of Ellen Chen and Mario Del Pero (they’re NorCal expats) went into the Pruneyard in Campbell in December. Since that opening, Mendo Farms has unveiled a new artisan sandwich — old-school pastrami smoked over hickory, topped with celery root slaw, bread-and-butter pickles and house-made mustard on toasted rye bread. It’s available at both locations. The couple had been on a pastrami crusade for five years, since tasting the real McCoy on a New York food tour and finding out that most pastrami in this country isn’t smoked at all but rather injected with smoke-flavored chemicals. Next up in the Mendo Farms expansion plan is a San Mateo restaurant in the Park Place at Bay Meadows center, which is scheduled to open in March, followed by San Francisco and Sacramento locations. The Santana Row location will be open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, the same hours as at the Pruneyard.

All-meatball restaurant opens in San Jose By Linda Zavoral Two years after bringing the East Coast-born meatball craze to the South Bay, the locally owned House of Meatball has expanded to San Jose’s Cambrian neighborhood.

San Jose’s new sandwich market: Mendocino Farms    

That gives the group three in the area: The first is on Morgan Hill, and the second in San Jose’s Evergreen area. Despite the singularity of the House of Meatball name, there are many, many choices here.

By Linda Zavoral Mendocino Farms, a creator of seasonal and healthy sandwiches and salads, will open its second Bay Area location.

The Build Your Own part of the menu allows you to customize your protein (lamb, pasture-raised beef, freerange chicken, pork or veggie) and your sauce (eight, from classic red marinara to arugula pesto to lemon dill.) Feel you need to supplement this meat-o-rama with leafy veggies? The menu offers garden greens, salads. VALLEY ACCESS ELECTRONIC MAGAZINE/6

DINING WITH BELLA =

SATURDAY EVENING IN LOS GATOS This past weekend a friend and I spent a Saturday evening in Los Gatos. Our original plan was to eat at the Catamount Restaurant. However, after a brief stop there, we moved on. Here is my story: We entered Catamount and were not greeted by anyone. We made our way to the bar. The bartender seemed nice enough to begin with and quickly got our drinks for us. The restaurant itself is done beautifully, and the piped in music was very cool, old-timey 20s music. I thought I was going to love this place.

Looking for some useful tips and tricks to make your next networking event a success? Join the Silicon Valley Business Journal as we show you how to unlock the mystery out of Networking!

Come to find out there was no hostess on duty on a Saturday night, management was attempting to help, but without someone at the Hostess desk, they miss a lot of traffic. My companion looked around the bar and asked the bartender about a pinkish concoction a couple were drinking down the bar. The bartender replied that it was just something he mixed up. End of discussion. We observed for about 30 minutes as we slowly drank our drinks, and noticed that regulars at this place are treated very well, but if you are new, you won’t get much attention. We ordered a starter named Beignets. Now, we are very familiar with the doughnut type of beignets and were interested to see how you can make one savory instead of sweet. What the brought us was a warm Beignet with cold cheese, prosciutto, and some greens. Ultimately we found the warm mixed with fresh from the fridge cold didn’t work. We exchanged glances and called for the bill. This restaurant, for us, was a no go. We moved on down the street and arrived at the Lexington House. Completely different experience. The bartender was warm and jovial. I went for my usual, a Belvedere martini, up, very dry. He explained they don’t carry the kinds of brands people might be used to but was able to give me a taste of vodka that I might enjoy as much. He was right. Its name was Charbray Vodka and it was great. The cost was 12.00 for a martini. For my entrée I ordered the Carnaroli Risotto – with Maitake mushrooms, Leeks, Madeira Crème Fraiche – list price 24.00. It was delicious and I highly recommend it if you in a risotto kind of mood. We wound up staying longer and drinking more than we intended, and will be back for more another time.
