NASA Is Now Teaching Its Employees How To Hold a Fork

As Times Change, She Returns to the Basics of Dining, NASA LaRC

"I've been at NASA Langley for more than 30 years," said Cheryl Cleghorn, the center's outreach and protocol coordinator. "I've seen lots of changes in the last five or six years." Many of them involved money. "Before, NASA was given its budget and did what it was going to do with it," Cleghorn said. "Now we're collaborating and competing for additional funds for the center." The key word here is "partnership," and Cleghorn brought together 17 women and three men from Langley who might be called upon to dine with potential partners who could bring business to the center. They were there to learn to "Outclass the Competition: Dine Like a Diplomat."

Keith's note: I'll be the first to agree that most NASA employees have little or no experince in the business environment out in the real world - and it shows. But I am a little baffled as to why the agency is spending money and time to teach people how to eat.
