Way Of Life

Etiquette Iowa knows that manners are a way of life. “Etiquette is not about impressing people, it is about using kindness, courtesy, and respect in every part of our daily lives.”

Good manners should be a way of life, and practicing such manners gives one the confidence to feel comfortable in social and business situations.

OPERATION GOOD MANNERS: Hold the door. Say Hello. Use Please and Thank You. Offer to help. Be polite. Pay a compliment. Say you’re sorry (and mean it). Clean up your mess. Wash your hands often. Present a rose. Share with others. Repeat.
