People have spent so much time in recent years lost in their virtual lives that they've forgotten how to actually communicate and behave in the real world. That's why, after spending years shielded behind computer screens and user names, modern professionals are seeking out more traditional advice on manners and social niceties.


Thanksgiving to Hanukah and Kwanza and Christmas can be a blur for some of us. Besides our busy enough every-day lives now we sometimes face a huge "to do" list which can including entertaining, traveling to relatives, sending out holiday cards, gift buying, etc. It is a festime time of year but can also be stressful for many.

On a recent Saturday morning in New York, a group of students practiced making eye contact and smiling when they introduced themselves, learned how to make a phone call and worked on shaking hands properly with the help of Velcro gloves.

After, they sat down to a formal meal replete with china and crystal tableware, at which they were taught how to make a toast.


Back in 1967 the rules for dating were fairly clear-cut whether you agreed with them or not. Check out this U.S. Navy instructional video, How to Succeed with Brunettes. (What is UP with that title, anyway?)


When children are little, those spaghetti-stained faces, greedy grabs for the crackers, and startling mid-meal burps are adorable. By age 5, not so much. At 15? It’s sloppy behavior to be banned — stat! Enter educational and etiquette consultant Rachel Isgar.

Making A Great First Impression

There is an old adage that you cannot take back your first impression. Fair or not, this is true. So make it a great impression. When meeting someone new for the first time, whether it may be a friend, colleague, etc., keep this in mind. A smile always goes a long way.


Students can learn to improve their social IQs in classes on dining, dressing and other etiquette. Tying a bow tie? Think about it in mathematical terms.
