About the Course:
Most people would agree that thoughtful behavior and common decency are in short supply, or simply forgotten in hurried lives of emails, cellphones, and multi-tasking. In Choosing Civility, P. M. Forni identifies the twenty-five rules that are most essential in connecting effectively and happily with others. In clear, witty, and, well…civilized language, Forni covers topics that include: * Think Twice Before Asking Favors * Give Constructive Criticism * Refrain from Idle Complaints * Respect Others’ Opinions * Don’t Shift Responsibility and Blame * Care for Your Guests * Accept and Give Praise. Finally, Forni provides examples of how to put each rule into practice and make life—and the lives of others—more enjoyable, companionable, and rewarding. Choosing Civility is a simple, practical, perfectly measured, and quietly magical handbook on the lost art of civility and compassion.
This course is based on the book, Choosing Civility: The Twenty-Five Rules of Considerate Conduct created by Forni, P.M., Ph.D. in 0.
