Social literacy is basically about etiquette and good manners in the present-day world where technology, specifically mobile devices have changed the way we interact at home, at work and in business. Though, technological devices have enhanced human interaction, they also have proved to interfere with real human interaction. As a result, etiquette and good manners have become insignificant and probably muted especially in most social settings where human interaction is expected for warmth, empathy and compassion, like at the work places and in most homes. This is where we come in as an organization to empower individuals and organizations to adopt the Holistic Think Model in reawakening these fast eroded social skills. Social literacy skills help us in our daily interaction at home, at school and at the workplace or business and contribute in making the world a better place to live, work and do business.
How To Behave and Conduct Yourself
Social literacy will make you understand how to behave and conduct yourself in any social setting like, home, school, workplace or business world. It helps people and organizations to communicate in a respectful manner as well as becoming involved in whatever setting you find yourself in. Social literacy helps in developing appropriate language for different settings to denote respect and context. It also guides in how to dress, and behave appropriately to suit social situations and settings in which you find yourself. Like no dressing too casually or texting and using phones during interviews.
