The first step of your journey
Congratulations! You have just taken the first step on your journey to a career as an Etiquette Coach. Your love for good manners and social graces can soon become the basis of an exciting and lucrative new career.
You will discover how to start and succeed in the etiquette coaching industry. In this course, you will learn the importance of etiquette in people’s lives, see why there is increasing demand for professional etiquette consultants, learn about the numourous benefits of this career, and discover the steps required to start as an etiquette coach.
What exactly is etiquette?
If you ask ten people what etiquette means, you will likely get ten different answers ranging from knowing which fork to use, to when to send a thank-you note. Many people consider etiquette to be something you use when you’re at a fancy dinner or meeting VIPs, but etiquette is more than just knowing what cutlery to use or how to make proper introductions.
Etiquette is all about behaviour, it’s about knowing the right way to behave so you are comfortable in all situations and you make other people around you feel at ease.
In demand across many industries
Today etiquette consultants are in demand across all markets, from the large corporate companies who want their managers and directors to understand how to behave with foreign clients to school classrooms teaching children how to make small talk or display beautiful table manners.
As a certified etiquette coach you will join an exciting and growing industry. Since the year 2000, etiquette training is increasing in popularity and demand across the world. But the single biggest explosion for etiquette coaching is across Asia and Africa.
As a Certified International Etiquette Coach, you will be teaching people the skills and behaviour they need to succeed in both thier business and personal lives. The difference you make to their lives will be one of your greatest career rewards.
Etiquette Coaches choose a number of areas to specialise in. Some focus on coaching adults or children on proper etiquette and manners. Consider the sloppy eater who used to offend people with bad table manners simply because nobody took the time to teach him the correct manners, with your help they can be transformed into the charming guest everyone wants to invite to dinner.
While many private individuals hire an etiquette coach themselves, etiquette for corporate clients is one of the biggest expansion areas in the etiquette and behaviour market. Companies hire etiquette coaches to help young managers understand correct business etiquette, senior executives to make great first impressions at board level and to guide travelling executives in cultural etiquette when meeting clients from different countries and cultures across the world.
A common question we get asked is whether an etiquette coach is well paid. Generally speaking the answer is yes, however there is a caveat to this. You won’t be successful overnight, it takes time to get established, it takes time to become known and get recognised and it takes time and hard work to market yourself and your services. Doing a course will not miraculously transform you overnight into a successful etiquette coach but what it will do is give you the tools and knowledge to move ahead with confidence.
