Vibration Nation

Perhaps Scarlet is on a phone hating spree this week, but it’s better to be informed.

So, about those ringing cell phones in the office… Let’s be clear here. Your co-workers don’t like them and quite frankly, it’s unprofessional. So, maybe the sound of your daughters voice saying “pick up the phone” as your ringer is just the cutest thing to you…and perhaps it is.

But, the key to abiding by the business etiquette laws is simply knowing time and place. Etiquette is not necessarily about wearing petticoats and always utilizing every utensil that is put before you at a dinner table. On the other hand, it is knowing that if you were in a position where you HAD to use all of the utensils, plates, cups and glasses at a formal setting, you would know how to do so.

It’s also knowing that the vibration or silent option for your cell phone is an option for a reason. That reason is when you are in an office or professional setting.

Until next time…


I enjoy doing a lot of things, but at the top of that list is inspiring people to take action and harness their inner CONFIDENCE!! I love assisting people with discovering and reaching their full potential and I do so through the fields of etiquette and leadership. Now, I wouldn't dare say that I’m a traditional etiquette and leadership consultant. This may be a little confusing because what could possibly exude more of a traditional feeling than being a good leader and practicing good etiquette?

But my perspective and approach to leadership is more nuanced and modern. I believe that leadership shouldn’t only coalesce among our C-suite executives. Leadership can be a vast and inclusive concept, and everyone has leadership potential in their own unique way in both professional and social settings (my book, Leader by Mistake, talks all about this). I take great pride in curating and delivering classes and content that inspire people to lead wherever they are and with the tools that that they have so that they can advance to their next level.
