A big part of my job at the university is schmoozing with people at social events so that they will feel comfortable coming to me for help in achieving a teaching-related goal. But those people skills help me in other areas of my life, too. When I’m out and about running errands, people will be more inclined to help me if I am friendly and courteous.
Social Courtesy is a Coronet Instructional Film from 1951. This gem of a movie helps Bill understand that he is the common denominator in the way people interact with him.

PS: I just realized that I’ve lost an entire day due to being holed up in this conference center this week. Today is FRIDAY not Thursday! *sheesh* Well…it is still a fun film even if it isn’t actually being posted on a Thursday…
