Professional Etiquette

Our goal is for our clients to stand out not stick out. First impressions matter. A flimsy handshake or a quick glance at cell phone while someone is speaking can leave a lasting impression. Learn why little details are important and can make the biggest impact .~

We've been told this course is a game changer and we couldn't agree more.  No need to second guess yourself during an important moment. Understanding host and guest duties, navigation of silverware and glassware, napkin etiquette, silent signals to a well trained waitstaff will set you apart from others.  This is how you rise to the occasion! ~

Mindfulness Training

Being in the present moment, knowing how to destress, decompress and undo a racing mind is a valuable tool to master.  When Forbes magazine asked some of the most successful and influential people of our times what their secret to success was, overwhelmingly the one practice that showed up on the list more than any other was mindfulness.  This came in many forms including meditation, prayer, stillness and gratitude. This practice costs nothing but offers everything...opening up an entire realm from which you can then operate peacefully and successfully. ~

Don’t reserve your best behavior for special occasions. You can’t have two set of manners, two social codes—one for those you admire and want to impress, another for those whom you consider unimportant. You must be the same to all people.
