Effective communication and a polished image are integral parts of etiquette and good manners - hallmarks of civility. Without them, one is relegated to the sidelines of life's cornucopia. Good manners begin at home and must be taught from a very early age, earlier than one might expect. As Her Majesty once explained, "We learn as the monkeys do, from our parents". So, from the very start, we mimic our parents' behavior, their etiquette and manners, good or bad. Our parents are our leaders and are responsible for our very survival; therefore we surmise that whatever they do and however they do it must be right and acceptable.
Somewhere along the line however, etiquette and good manners have lapsed into obscurity, being sadly replaced by an attitude of self-centeredness, entitlement and rudeness. If one is to succeed either socially or in business, recapturing both proper etiquette and good manners is essential.
