About Us

At Everyday Manners we focus on improving communication, confidence, and courtesy (often referred to as soft skills) for individuals, groups, and corporate teams. Refining these skills as an individual can help you in all areas of life, whether you’re a student or small business owner. Believe it or not, something as seemingly small as looking someone in the eye while speaking to them can make all the difference between a good or bad first impression.  For corporate entities, once your team takes ownership of your unique culture, your business brand will be more effectively and cohesively conveyed to your customers. Building rapport, gaining trust and loyalty, and making your customer feel valued must be priorities. When that’s the case, you will build a strong and positive company image. This in turn helps you gain loyal, repeat customers who provide quality referrals, thereby increasing your bottom line.

So, whether you are building your personal brand, or representing your company in today’s market, everyone, no matter what stage of life or job title, should possess polished soft skills and knowledge of communication and business etiquette. The Everyday Manners team can equip you or your employees with the social etiquette skills necessary to project a confident and courteous first-class image. Our comprehensive training covers the skills that individuals and corporations require to be effective. Let us prepare a program to meet your goals!

Margarette Coleman is an Etiquette and Communication Consultant and Trainer. She spent the first 20 years of her work life in Counseling, Human Resources, and Education. Margarette recognized the struggle for people to introduce themselves, hold conversations, and even make eye contact with others. Due to the increase in the use of modern technology, face-to-face communication was deteriorating. So, she launched Everyday Manners with the goal of bringing back common courtesies, graciousness, and respect.

With a Master’s Degree in Social Work, years of coaching sports teams, certification in Conflict Resolution, and her other varied work experience, she brings a unique perspective to modern day Etiquette and Communication Training. Margarette lives in Newnan, has been married for over 20 years, and has twins in college.

Adulting is more than just getting to decide what time you go to bed, when to wake up, and who you want to hang out with. Adulting is about responsibility...taking care of your self, surroundings, and business. Need some assistance? Hit me up! #almostgrown #mannersmatter #LITA

CommonCourtesyTip#4 If you must be attached to your cell phone, please turn it on vibrate when at an event/meeting/meal with others. You can keep it in your lap and discreetly check when necessary. It's disrespectful to others to keep it audible. #MannersMatter #phonesoff #LITA
