WElcome to protocol matters.
Many thoughtful people are taking a fresh look at good manners, what they are, and how they shape the way we live and our relationships.
The timeless commandment to love others includes good manners. It’s hard to show love in the trifles when our behavior causes embarrassment, hurts others, or violates thoughtful etiquette with missteps that land squarely on another person’s toes. More than ever, we need the beneficial guidance of tried and true social graces for multiple situations…dining etiquette, introductions, conversation to name a few. Changes in some practices occur, but not the basics. Protocol’s guidelines stem from enduring principles based on respect, kindness, and consideration.
