The Stepping Stones to Success begin here…

Hello, my name is Maria Doll, Etiquette Expert of Leadership Matters. I’m so glad that you visited today.

You are a clever person, obviously, why else would you be visiting my website? Because you know that etiquette is a very important skill set for children to learn and you’re looking for some good resources. I agree with you.

As we know, etiquette isn’t something fussy and out of date from some bygone era nor is it a way of acting with a superior attitude towards others. No, absolutely not.

We use etiquette to interact with people in a good way because everyone:

  • Deserves to be treated with respect…whether we like them or not.
  • Should feel welcomed and put at ease.
  • Will know that we have integrity.

I have been a certified Etiquette trainer for the past 9 years working with adults, families, youth, and children facilitating workshops, courses, and camps. I also provide one-on-one personal coaching for anyone (youth or adult) who wants to up their game in the social skills department.

I am absolutely delighted to assist you and your family to become more confident with etiquette.
