Formal Protocol in Private Service has evolved a great deal in recent decades since Private Service emerged from the shadows of servitude! The old language of “Inferiors” and “Superiors” has long since passed, but some things have stayed the same. The Starkey International Institute has strongly advanced the education of both Service Professionals and Principals based on the premise that mutual respect is the only stable foundation for the Relationship of Service. Our clients have consistently emphasized the importance of propriety and respect in dealing with their employers and co-workers, but Household and Estate Managers also learn to set proper boundaries with Principals in order to honor their role as professionals. Protocol always serves good manners and efficiency. The order of introductions at social events offers a fine example.
The Starkey International Institute for Household Management is deeply committed to meeting the needs of industry Service Professionals and their Employers.
At Starkey we are committed to our students and graduates, and the ability to network and resource with each other. Therefore, as part of our commitment, if you are interested in connecting with other graduates within your city, state, geographic location, and or country, please contact us.
In addition, we will be reaching out to the members of our community as part of our newly formalized Mentorship Program. Starting with class 102 (graduation is March 6, 2009) we will introduce our recent graduates to seasoned professionals in the industry. If you are interested in participating, please contact Admissions or Education at Starkey International.
