Jacqueline Recommends: The Power of Civility

by Jacqueline Whitmore

The Power of Civility brings 18 leading civility professionals together, including Jules Hirst, Suzanne Nourse, and Cheryl Walker-Robertson, to showcase their expertise, proficiency, and skill in the field. The Power of Civility covers eclectic topics ranging from civility on college campuses to making civility a lifestyle, allowing the reader to become more savvy in each subject area. This book is rich with content, with each author leaving the reader with tips to succeed.

All the authors do a terrific job of taking modern technologies and lifestyles into consideration with their tips, along with acquainting the reader with the origins and traditions of passing on civility. I especially enjoyed reading chapter 5, The Power of Leadership Civility: Leading by Example, by Laura Barclay. Laura includes a valuable list of ways in which leaders demonstrate civility in the workplace and the many benefits that these leadership skills can bring.

Above all, The Power of Civility gives the readers the tools necessary to master protocol in networking, dining, and interpersonal relationships. The reader can apply the knowledge they acquire from this book to both their personal and professional lives. After reading this book, the reader is sure to feel more confident in handling social situations with ease and grace.

The book retails for $24.00. Click here to order.
