Please join us as we celebrate National Etiquette Week!
We believe that etiquette and good manners is all about being kind to others, and isn't that worth celebrating?
National Etiquette Week (NEW) was established in 1997 by Sandra Morisset, a children's etiquette consultant, as a way to raise awareness of the importance of courtesy, civility, and good manners in everyday life.
The theme of this year's NEW, held May 13-17, is "Put the Civil Back Into Civility." Civility is a vital part of the professional and social realms—business, social, dining, travel, technology, wedding, and international protocol. But we also need civility in everyday life.
• Taking a break from digital screen time to be fully present with loved ones.
• Finding ways to say "Hello" or "How are you?" to colleagues throughout the work day.
• Replacing negativity, judgmental attitudes, and condescension with gratitude, acceptance, and happiness.
Next week, we'll be posting daily with easy tips on how to be more mindful of your manners, and how to use those manners to brighten the lives around you. We'll remind you how manners help nurture friendships, build meaningful connections with others, and put a smile on your face! Good manners do make an impact in your community!
So join us next week as we celebrate NEW 2013!
