As an etiquette expert (or an aspiring one), there are many business lessons we can learn from Audrey Hepburn’s life.

Since you are apart of our community, I bet you are a fan of Audrey Hepburn.

Those of us that are interested in etiquette most likely adore her.  Audrey’s sense of style and beauty is alluring and so fascinating.

I was glued to this movie about her life. Warning- this documentary isn’t all about glamour, Hollywood and style.  

This documentary about Audrey’s life gets real about her personal life.  She was ten-years-old when the war broke out. She moved to different countries and her father left Audrey when she was six-years-old.  This was devastating to her because she adored him.

After many obstacles in her life, Aubrey still triumphed and had loving relationships with her two children.

Here Are 3 Lessons and Traits We Can Learn from Audrey Hepburn 

After watching this documentary, there were three character traits that really stood out to me.  I think we can all look to Audrey when we are thinking about our own professional development goals.

Revolutionary: According to the dictionary, “revolutionary” means, causing complete and dramatic change.  

Audrey had a real love for ballet and wanted to become a ballerina.  She realized this was not going to happen for her.  She did a pivot because one day she had the chance to become an actress.  She made a comment that she had enough skills and “they”, meaning producers and directors, had “enough to work with”. 

Vulnerabilities: Audrey had a very tough childhood. As I mentioned above, she was ten when the war broke out.  Her father left when she was six.  She was married and divorced twice.  Her second marriage to an Italian physician was especially challenging.

She was resilient.  She found happenings and love with Robert Wolders who was her constant companion until her death in 1993.

I loved seeing her son, Sean Hepburn Ferrer, talk about his mother. 

Transformational: We can all learn from Audrey as she was driven and seized the moment even though certain things-like becoming a ballerina, did not work out for her.  

Can you imagine if she did not go down the path of becoming an actress?  She tried. Audrey succeeded. 

The documentary is narrated in certain parts by her granddaughter,  Emma Ferrer.
