How to behave correctly in any situation where etiquette matters, without feeling tense or unnatural!
Have you ever been in a situation where you suddenly find yourself feeling awkward because you don't know what to do or say? Maybe it happened at a dinner with your colleagues, or at a wedding reception or maybe at a funeral? And how many times have you left home feeling insecure about the clothes you chose to wear? Who doesn't feel this way sometimes? Will I be overdressed? Will I be underdressed? In fact, for most people not knowing certain specific social norms has on occasion lead to a tendency to be excluded from social events.
Have you ever had that moment when you said something, and saw absolutely nothing wrong with what you said, but all on a sudden everyone in the room was looking at you with appalled shock - and all you could think was, "What did I say?" That was you making a social faux pas.
Remember, there is more to good manners than sipping your tea the right way. These specific sets of rules allow us to identify with each other and find common ground. They also allow us to ensure that we don't infringe on anyone else's space even though we may not think we are doing so. Etiquette is, as such, a social vaccine of sorts, one that helps prevent the negative impact of ignorance on social connections. And while not many may deem this to be important, the truth of the matter is it is very important. No matter what your problem might be, this book will inspire you, it will guide you and it will help you to get the right knowledge for any common circumstance where etiquette really matters, like at a wedding, a funeral, or at a dinner setting. I guide you through each circumstance with a well-planned and thought-through strategy to get you the much needed practical and applicable etiquette.
