For All

Yes, we work with individual adults, couples, and established groups and organizations. Each training/workshop is customized for the needs and desires of the person or group.

We generally do not take anyone younger than 7. We need them to be able to read and sit still for 15 minutes or more.

Teenagers are in a major transition stage of life, from being a child to becoming an adult. Everyday Manners can ease some of the difficulties of that transition by teaching essential skills in communication (conversation, interviewing, networking, etc.) that will allow them to be confident in any social or professional situation. Along this journey, basic (and expected) guidelines of etiquette will be covered to polish any rough edges when out in the world and connecting with others. The benefits of this training far outlive this stage of life. With regular incorporation of these skills in everyday contact with others, these skills become a natural part of life long adulting. We offer customized individual or small group training on the teenagers’ schedules.

For Businesses

Benefits:

  • Increases employee morale, and therefore, decreases employee turnover
  • Increases customer satisfaction, thereby increasing return customers and referrals
  • Facilitates more natural and composed relations with clients which, in turn, creates bonds and loyalty to your business

Individually creates smoother communication transactions in all aspects of life – professionally, socially, and personally – which results in improved comfort and confidence in societal situations.

What Everyday Manners Training & Consulting offers is a personal, customizable program that fits the needs of this particular client. An assessment of issues and behaviors reveals what is needed in the particular department/team. And those are the matters that are addressed for that specific business.

This is a common concern, especially with job hopping on the rise. The initial consultation includes discovering the best route to be taken for the assessment. Possible options are: a survey, an observation (open or covert), a pre-training didactic dialog, or by the leadership’s qualified suggestion.

Leadership might send an employee for training to learn a new program, to gain knowledge in a specific area of their job, or to enhance their skills for upward mobility. Training in communication skills and business and personal etiquette delivers the same results. Businesses are built from the people that represent them. If employees do not exhibit the communication skills, grace, and courtesy the company declares, then the business is not living up to its own standards. Clients recognize this and act on it, with or without the knowledge of management, which will have a negative effect on the company’s bottom line.

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

CommonCourtesyTip#2 Generally, the far left lane on an expressway/interstate is for passing, not setting the speed limit. Please allow others to get where they need to go. #slowertrafficstayright #mannersmatter #loveistheanswer #LITA

CommonCourtesyTip#1 It's cold & flu season. If you are coughing, sneezing, or ill in any way, it's your responsibility to NOT spread your ailments. Cough & sneeze into the bend of your arm. Keep your hands away from your face and wash them often. #mannersmatter #loveistheanswer
