The Rewards of Courtesy
September is National Courtesy Month and in honor of it, we will explore the rewards of courtesy. So often courtesy is either taken for granted or thought of as soft and less important. So we will gather to explore courtesy and its deeper value.

What Are the True Rewards of Courtesy?
From customer service, to teamwork, leadership, and global business, courtesy delivers far more than we often acknowledge. It’s more than a smile to make someone feel good.
When we picture business interactions without courtesy, the image and outcomes change dramatically.
