The rules of business are often set in stone, but the rules of etiquette are ever-changing. This is often due to the rapid pace of technology and its effect on our lives. The one constant is that etiquette is always based on respect for others.
Chinese Dining and Social Etiquette with Effective Communication
When dining in China, how you act will greatly affect how others perceive you. In fact, it will pay to observe your host during the meal to determine what you might do next. And, above all, leave your chopsticks alone unless you’re actually eating.
Continental Dining and Social Etiquette with Effective Communication
As comedian Eddie Izzard famously said, "I grew up in Europe, where the history comes from." This is also true for many of our dining and etiquette traditions.
Communication and Ensuring Words Do No Harm
Words not only have meaning; they have power. In our everyday dealings with others, we often find ourselves communicating not just with a variety of persons but in a variety of situations that might require us to communicate in a wide variety of ways.
