The Protocol of Domestic Workers

Most households have domestic workers who provide them with services such as cooking, cleaning, laundry, driving, security, etc. Just because these people are paid for their efforts don’t mean you can ignore good manners tell them what to do without politeness. If you don't want to raise a child who will reflect an echo of poor parenting then, gets avoided in a really cultured circle, it’s not in the place of your child to give instructions to these people you've hired. If he or she must request anything of them then, the request must be made with politeness. As an employer of domestic workers think of yourself as a peripheral profit for those who work at your house. Be polite and helpful to them. Try to build warm, respectful relationships with them.—even though you think they are unlikely to be any good to you in future.


Authoritative Figure

When managing Russian employees, be clear and precise in your communications. Don't try to be subtle and make "suggestions," assuming that Russians will "take the hint." Give concise instructions. Russians accept authority figures; be one. 

Formal vs. Informal Dinner Conversation Tip

When you seat at a formal or an informal dinner, don't wave your silverware as you make a point in a conversation. If you must use your hands to discuss a topic, lay your silverware down on your plate. 

DRS Children's Day Etiquette Workshop 2015

Teaching phonics classes in different schools, I see unlikable manners in children of parents who no longer have the time to teach manners. With crammed family program and a modern-day belief of many parents that they should merely let their children be children and not be closely controlled in any way, good manners has become cruel and not allowed in many households. In the fight to teach good manners to this new generation, and as part of DRS Corporate Social Responsibility, I decided to start a free etiquette workshop for the Children's Day, designed to empower children, and youth from different schools around Nigeria to develop strong social skills that will transform them into leaders of tomorrow. These children here, learned new potentials contained in them to take control of their destiny by applying good manners.


Make an Eye Contact

How repeatedly  have you had a discussion with some people who never looked you  in the eye throughout the whole span of conversation? Or possibly  they did meet your gape a few times, but then their eyes moved off to their nails, or to some entity afar-off.  I would like to say this is lack of confidence, and it starts from when a person is young. This unlikable mannerism has cost a lot of people job opportunities. The ability to make eye contact is one of the social skills, companies look for in a job applicant, because this ability makes a person appear agreeable, powerful and confident. These qualities are needed in employees to captivate customers that will thrust the success of a business forward.

Why did I chose to talk about this topic this evening? About two weeks ago I was on EKO 89.7FM with Olabisi Omidire  a.k.a  Double-O, discussing which manners are most important for kids to possess, and I mentioned "making eye contact."  After the program a friend sent this to me:
"About the stuff on children looking straight in the eye of adults. Me I go plug their eyes if my children do that."
Clearly, this person has misunderstood the good message of this particular manner. Well in general I will say if you are scolding a child and he/or she looks at you in the eye, that's an act of disrespect. Such bad manner makes a child appear unpleasant in the eye of families that promotes civility and as such may not allow their kids to make friends with such a child. However, a cute mistake that some  parents make is to think that their young children are shy or respectful when they avoid looking into a person's eye while having a normal conversation with them. When a child is looking away when he's being greeted or having a normal conversation, this explain lack of confidence.It's unlikable mannerism that should be abolished without delay.

When greeting, your child should shake hands and make eye contact. A deep bow demonstrate respect and making eye contact prove level of confidence. When your child/children is having normal conversation with you or anyone he should make eye contact. The ability to make eye contact is a skill every parent should help their children work on, as it has been shown to produce some incredible benefits in the business settings and life generally.
