Develop a world-class team

Civility impacts your bottom line—hard. Research shows that incivility in the workplace is expensive—causing job stress and costing the US $500 billion per year. When employees do not feel respected and valued, 48% decrease their work efforts, 66% experience performance declines, and 25% admit to taking their frustration out on clients!

Civility pays. Civil employees perform 13% better and are seen as more competent and powerful. Employees who feel respected by their leader report 55% more engagement. Why? Because relationships matter. We want to help your team cultivate relationships that make them want to come to work, work effectively together, and engage clients in a way that makes your business thrive. Civility is the cornerstone.

Corporate Testimonials

“The impact of training can last a day, a week or perhaps a year or more. Deborah's training was different and focused on core human values that will last a lifetime. Our engagement with Deborah has left an indelible influence on our team. After our engagement, many have commented on how differently they now approach and engage in a social setting. Everyone feels more confident, more comfortable and above all, we sharpened our appreciation for civility and etiquette both in our personal and professional lives. I recommend Deborah's services without reservation and I'm grateful we were able to avail ourselves of her exquisite knowledge and professionalism.”

John Murray, President and CEO of Concept Laser, Inc.

“Admittedly, I had high expectations of Deborah's consulting expertise based on her website and her publications. My expectations were exceeded within the first 15 minutes of Deborah's day-long seminar. I recently contacted Deborah and requested a custom-design seminar for corporate protocol specifically for our unique company culture. The participants were fixed on Deborah all day and wanted more when it was over! I recommend Deborah especially for senior leadership coaching, particularly if the company in question requires travel and networking events for their executives / staff. Your company's image will benefit greatly from the skills your employees obtain from Deborah King's Final Touch!”

Kathryn Strenger

“Deborah recently taught a class on dining etiquette to our group of young professionals. She was a fantastic instructor - extremely knowledgeable about etiquette and civility, and also a very skilled presenter. She engaged with our group really well, and we all left with an improved understanding of the importance of etiquette and civility as we move forward in our careers. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an educational (and entertaining) class - you will definitely get a lot out of it!”

Varun Bhatnagar, Associate at Strategy&, part of the PwC network

“Thank you, Deborah, for the wonderful presentation you did for our annual company meeting. Everyone has been talking about it and really appreciated the fact that we chose to have a speaker on a non-industry topic. It seemed to reflect the message that we really care about them as people, and not just as workers (which of course we do!). Your speaking style is very engaging (I guess you’ve done this before!) and your ability to hold an audience’s attention for 3 hours is impressive. I will definitely reach out to you for our meeting next year.”

Eric Eicher, Founder and Director of Versacor Enterprises, LLC.

“Deborah presented a half day seminar for our attorneys and paralegals titled "Polishing your Professionalism". Her presentation was inventive with great ideas and real life situations that everyone could use. She easily connected with our entire group due to her personality and detailed knowledge of the subject.”

Christina Sandman, Soha & Lang, P.S.

“I contracted Deborah to instruct my employees in Professional Development. Deborah’s class was received very well by my employees and we all gained from her knowledge and expertise. Feedback from my employees was not only positive, but useful and appreciated. We all took valuable information from the class and have utilized it in our day to day business operations. The best part of the class for me as an employer was to note the improvement in our employees’ communication with each other and our customers. Communication is key to success.”

Deborah Mann, Owner and President of Mann Refrigeration
