"A man's manners are a mirror in which he shows his portrait." Goethe

"Manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others." Emily Post

"It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice." John Cassis

The Next Competitive Advantage:

Winters can be hard but this winter seems more difficult.

Too many are being asked to endure not only the cold of nature but a harsh new cold of business.

This winter, out of work media folks are experiencing the most bone-chilling of cold responses, that of no responses at all. It's the absence of social grace, the disappearance of civility, and an apparent lack of professional respect. It seems we should consider adding manners to our list of endangered or abandoned practices for it would appear that manners, at least for now, are somehow missing in action.

My sense is this represents an incredible opportunity.
