Promoting Polished Skills for Life and Business
“Civility is a powerful tool for promoting a culture of respect, developing meaningful relationships, and improving self-confidence to give wings to your dreams” this according to Civility Advisor Prajitha Kurup.
Prajitha also believes that civility starts at home. And so encouraged by her family, she joined the international affiliate team at Civility Experts Worldwide Inc. and launched Polished Skills For Life and Business in 2017. Calgary, Canada based Polished Skills specializes in workplace civility training, personal social skills consultations, and confidence and character classes for children. The Polished Skills team also has an exclusive license to offer the world-renowned ICTC validated Civility at Work© and Courtesy Coach© Certification programs throughout Alberta, Canada.
Prajitha moved to Canada from Mumbai, India. in 2010. She studied Business and Public Relations at India’s Wellingkar Institute of Management Studies and proceeded to work with India’s top-notch Public Relations agencies that served clients in various industries including fashion and design. Throughout her decade long human resources career, Prajitha noticed that people of all ages were deeply affected by others uncivil behaviour towards them affecting their performance at work, at school or sometimes to even find a job. As a candidate for Master Civility Trainer status, Prajitha knows from experience and from reviewing the research that civility in our day to day interactions can put you, and everyone around you, in a better mind frame helping to develop healthier and meaningful relationships.
What’s next? Polished Skills anticipates launching an office in India in late 2018 and watch for Prajitha’s new book addressing the impact of technology on civility, anticipated early 2019.
