Nonmom’s Pick’s for #Holiday12 Part Two!

Power Manners by Shannon SmithThis time of year we all attend various social functions from the office party to coffee dates and lunches all the name of the Holiday season. This pick of mine is rather appropos I think as we could all use a quick refresher in a clear and easy-to-follow along way for successfully navigating these events with style, grace and of course, proper manners!

Recently I had the pleasure of meeting Shannon Smith and also got to read her book, Power Manners. I was raised that manners are important and I firmly believe that to this day. I think in a lot of cases people are so rushed they become oblivious to common courtesy with even the most basic, saying please and thank you for example, being overlooked. I actually make an effort to remember these and smile often. It’s just polite, and it’s the right thing to do. Plus, in my experience, people tend to remember those who make that extra effort…even though it shouldn’t be an effort.

The book is well organized and takes you from simple cocktail party etiquette to business meetings and lunches to international travel but also has the basics (which fork is which) explained in a clear and light-hearted way.

If you want to brush up, or even just check-up on how you stack up with your manners this book, and Shannon herself, will be able to help.
