A Simple Guide to Mastering the Art of Modern Manners 1970s Australia was a hotbed of social change, facilitated by the introduction of key policy changes: Not at fault divorce and free university education. The first had an enormous impact on the traditional nuclear family. This meant more women were entering full time work, and a new family structure emerged with more single parent or two parent working families. The ripple effect of these changes has seen two generations of decline of family values and in particular what we broadly call "manners" being part of our daily lives. The rise in immigration quickly lead to a clash of cultures in our workplaces and confusion of what is appropriate in business. When you add technology to the mix, the rise of the "me" generation is complete - and disastrous. 'Etiquette Secrets' will help those wish to understand how to navigate modern Australian society with confidence and style. Easy to read, this book outlines the appropriate behaviour which will ensure promotion, increase social standing and improve your opportunities in life.
