We are nearing the peak of the summer vacation season. Friends and families are traveling near and far to spend quality time with each other and create memories of a lifetime. Hosting family and friends can be a stressful time. Some of us begin to panic over the question of "enoughness". Do I have enough space? Is the house presentable enough? Have I planned enough and prepared enough? Lastly, did I make their visit special enough?
Well, ENOUGH of all those stress filled questions. Let's have some FUN.........
Most of us will never be required to testify at the level the world witnessed last week when former FBI Director James Comey took the “hot seat”. However, I think we can all benefit from a few courtroom etiquette tips that are useful at any judicial level.
PROTOCOL PLEASE. As I watched and listen to the hearing unfold, these are some of the etiquette practices that caught my attention. (1) There was one point person. Everyone knew who was in-charge of carrying out the agenda. (2) Every senator was allotted a certain amount of time and they honored it. (3) There were no verbal interruptions, rolling of eyes or sighing during the Q&A period, well maybe one. Everyone acted in a very civil and respectful manner.
