How to use "In decorous" in context?

As an armchair linguist, I'm always astounded at the creativity and ingenuity of people who speak formally. In its simplest form, decorous means "appropriate or proper." In the world of formal speaking, there are a multitude of ways to express appropriate behavior. Here are a few examples:

1. Be on time. This is perhaps the most basic rule of decorous behavior. Show up on time for meetings, events, and other social gatherings. It's courtesy to your fellow attendees to arrival on time, and it shows that you're punctual and reliable.

2. Speak calmly.
