Etiquette training has become the new buzzword and is designed to be male inclusive. While many males may not be excited about attending, at least some of the charm school girls-only stigma has been reduced if not eliminated. Still, there are similarities. Both are intended to shape one’s manners in a changing social and business world.
Charm School Verses Etiquette Training
The two schools have been a major tool for preparing one to become a more sophisticated and refined individual and to easily and comfortably assimilate into society. Even youngsters fear social situations that may cause embarrassment because they do not know what to do. Both disciplines offer programs that reform unprepared young people into confident ladies and gentlemen. Additionally, businesses have taken great notice and are investing in specialized training. Business owners know that outstanding etiquette and social skills resonate well with their employees, prospects, patients and clients. In our competitive marketplace manners and social skills matter a great deal.
Differences between Charm Training and Etiquette Training
The primary aim of a charm school is to offer training that will improve one’s social life. It focuses on the social issues that surround us on a day to day basis such as dating, family matters and life challenges. Teenagers are taught on matters like peer pressure, pre-marital sex, drugs and education. On the other hand, etiquette training is aimed at preparing the young and inexperienced to understand and feel comfortable in virtually any situation. The ability for anyone to have confidence and social skills dramatically increases their chance for success in an escalating competitive world.
Charm training generally focuses more on polish, refining one’s behavior including how to walk, sit, and dress properly. On the other hand, etiquette training covers a broad spectrum which entails personal enhancement, career enhancement and team relations.
The differences between the two disciplines may boil down to semantics and perception. Both training programs focus on helping people expand their view of the world and how to prepare for life challenges as they mature. Both training programs emphasize self- confidence, standards for appearance and communication. They both teach the skills required to interact with different people.
Finally, both disciplines are designed to provide training that most public and private schools are either unable or unqualified to teach.
