A New Book is in the Works!

Barbara is writing a book called A Hospitality Mindset™, addressing how we can each become the person we want to be in our lives, both in and out of the workplace. With over 350 research references and a lifetime of stories from over 50 job experiences, this book is meant to be insighful, funny, relevant and maybe even life shifting. That’s the plan, anyway. Updates and excerpts will be posted on the B. Lang Consulting Facebook page.

For now, please enjoy this free download of A Hospitality Mindset™ - A Primer on Dining Etiquette. Know the mechanics of the meal so you can focus on what's most important: The Conversation.
