Social Graces

Ritika Ramtri
Social Graces ......History

The origin of the word etiquette as we use it today dates back to the reign of Louis XIV. Little tickets known as "etiquettes" served as invitations to court functions, on the back of which were printed rules of court behavior. Diplomacy isn't just for Diplomats! If you think a grasp of proper etiquette is for tea drinking nobles, think again. Knowing when, what, how and why in social graces is key in today’s social and business arena.Why Social Graces?"Don't reserve your best behavior for special occasions. You can't have two sets of manners, two social codes -- one for those you admire and want to impress, another for those whom you consider unimportant. You must be the same to all people." -- Lillian Eichler Watson
