What is etiquette?

What are manners?

Why are these social skills 

considered as important?

Proper etiquette is knowing how to 

behave appropriately in various 


Proper etiquette guides us in the 

common courtesies of life. 

Etiquette helps us to be more aware of 

those around us. It is knowing and 

respecting people's customs and 


With proper etiquette we exhibit a 

positive attitude and pleasant 

demeanor. We use a firm handshake, 

maintain good eye contact, make 

appropriate introductions, rise when 

introduced or introducing someone, 

shows respect and consideration 

towards others, and listens well.

With proper etiquette we present 

ourselves with the kind of polish,

grooming, and behavior that 

commands that we are to be taken 


Good etiquette is the kindnesses with which 

we should always treat each other. 

Unselfishness, respect, honesty,

and consideration...

that's what etiquette is!

Whether it be a job interview,

a business meeting, or a social function... 

people often reach instant conclusions,

 positive or negative, on how they regard others 

within the first 15 to 30 seconds of meeting them.

Etiquette is the way one carries themselves in our society.

It is the sensible, professional, respectful, responsible

manner acceptable to the society and the workplace.

It is the behavior which earns respect and appreciation.


Without etiquette and good manners, members of society 

would show far too much impatience and disrespect 

for one another, which would lead to insults, dishonesty, 

cheating, road rage, fist fights, and a rash of other 

unfortunate incidents. 

Without proper etiquette and good manners

our polite society would soon disappear and 

the social behavior would, more than likely, be 

impolite and less like civilized human beings.

When rudeness, disrespect, and the lack of 

consideration for the law and mankind is exhibited 

throughout society... 

we will be subjected to a rapidly declining society. 

When morals and values have been discarded, and there is 

no civility... the conditions of society become very grave.  

Can you imagine what this world would be like if there 

was no trust, dignity, respect, manners, love or safety?
