Do you know when to tip and when to pass?
The clerk at your favorite bakery or local clothing boutique swipes your credit card and spins an electronic screen around that asks whether you want to tip. Do you select 15%, 20%, or 25% for being handed a croissant or for being shown to the dressing room? Or do you select “no tip” under the awkward gaze of the clerk? Learn how to handle awkward electronic tipping scenarios in this month’s “Do You Know?”

“The impact of training can last a day, a week or perhaps a year or more. Deborah’s training was different and focused on core human values that will last a lifetime. Our engagement with Deborah has left an indelible influence on our team. After our engagement, many have commented on how differently they now approach and engage in a social setting. Everyone feels more confident, more comfortable and above all, we sharpened our appreciation for civility and etiquette both in our personal and professional lives. I recommend Deborah’s services without reservation and I’m grateful we were able to avail ourselves of her exquisite knowledge and professionalism.”
