Description

Mindful Manners succinctly explains everything you need to know to successfully maneuver the world today, from proper networking to giving the perfectly tasteful toast.

We need only to look around our communities or visit social media to know there is an etiquette crisis. With rudeness rampant and civility on life support, it’s time for us to take a hard look at ourselves to determine if we are contributing to the problem or combating it.

Enter: Mindful Manners: Modern Etiquette for a Better Life, a common-sense examination of etiquette as an operating system for living life with kindness and courtesy while we work, play, drive, dine, and shop in our physical and virtual communities. Arranged by events and settings, you'll learn how to decode proper dining habits, wedding decorum, the secrets behind successful job interviews, and much more.

Mindful Manners jettisons the old-school notion that etiquette is nothing but stuffy rules on how to properly hold a teacup. Modern etiquette is a powerful tool that can help everyone feel comfortable and confident in a variety of situations, whether you're building personal and business relationships, demonstrating respect for others, or trying to live a life that flows more smoothly.
