The Meaning Behind our Mantra

January 2024

At Etiquette St. Louis, we value the principles of kindness, courtesy and respect. These words uphold the essence of our company by helping us strive to create the best experience for students, parents, and professionals.

Each of these words play a special part in the essence of Etiquette Saint Louis, and we have been reflecting on them throughout the month of January as we go into 2024.


Kindness is a fundamental word taught to children at a very young age. It is putting others first. It is treating others well. It is many things, but to put it bluntly, it is the act of willingly making others feel good, no matter the cost to you.

This doesn’t mean that you must give up everything to be kind. In many cases, it just means that you might need to step outside of yourself and put yourself in someone else’s shoes. This opens an opportunity for people to learn about others, all while spreading positivity.


Similarly, courtesy is the act of showing politeness to others based on our actions. In a sense, courtesy is defined by meaning what you say and saying what you mean.

Specifically, to have courtesy means that you put others first. You aim to be polite, make them feel comfortable, and put them at ease.


Respect is an age-old practice that often gets overlooked for the sake of pride. Having respect means that you hold others to the same regard as you hold yourself.

Respect acts as a form of support in a group, community, country, or society. No matter the group of people, there must have a sense of respect to keep things cordial and equal. Without respect, people don’t feel valued.

No matter your personal definition of each of these words, the purpose of them is all the same. These three words work together to make sure other people feel comfortable. They are a sense of sacrificing something of your own for the well-being of others.

That is what etiquette is all about. Etiquette is not only about holding your fork the right way, but what message you send by doing so. Etiquette is not only about remembering someone’s name, but making someone else feel valued by doing so. Etiquette is not only about writing thank you notes on time, it is about how your thankful words make others feel.

While actions are fostered by etiquette, the heart behind them is what is of the utmost importance. True etiquette comes from a heart postured by kindness, courtesy and respect; true etiquette comes from making sure others feel comfortable, valued and seen.

We strive to make people feel all these things and more as we enter into a new year with the same principles that have carried us through 24 years of kindness, courtesy and respect.
