…Learn how to treat people in all walks of life-school, family, social, career; and to be considerate of others from Emily Post’s Etiquette
This training builds confidence and self-esteem in young people, and prepares them with the skills they will use in various situations throughout life. It is beneficial to learn the protocol of greetings and introductions, which Mrs. Eichhorn appreciated when she met two United States Presidents, a Vice President, and a Canadian Prime Minister during her husband’s Major League Baseball career. Whether meeting the President, a prospective boss, a teacher, professor, classmate, store clerk, waitress/waiter, or a date’s parents, treating others with courtesy and respect are valuable social skills!
