Civility in America

A look at current standards for public discourse


The importance of civility in environments ranging from political discourse to public schools and universities has never been more apparent.

Common Sense and the Bottom Line

Ethical behavior has become an absolutely essential factor in corporate success. Today, with unethical behavior seen at the uppermost levels of huge corporations, an ethical lack of judgement from any employee within an organization can be detrimental to a business' reputation. Aside from avoiding a bruised or even shattered reputation, business etiquette can promote higher levels of job satisfaction, office communication and productivity. Topics covered include:

  • Top ten business etiquette behaviors
  • Five step process for solving relationship problems
