Respect Tip: What is Yours?

By | 2017-01-13T13:42:15+00:00 January 10th, 2012|Categories: Respect Tips|3 Comments

About six months ago, I created a new series here on the blog to focus on actionable respect tips. These tips may have seemed obvious to many of us, but they were also intended to be reminders for us all.

Too often, we get so immersed in our busy lives that we forget to pay attention to  these so-called “niceties.” But more than a “nicety,” respect has become imperative to how we interact and work with one another.

That’s why I want to find out from you.

What is YOUR respect tip? What are the must-have behaviors that to you create respect in your life and at your organization?

Please leave a comment with your tip and you may just see it featured in a future column!

    My respect tip: Saying Please and Thank You. Too often, people are in a hurry and when pressed for time, forget to ask instead of demanding. Please and Thank You are such simple words and I wish everyone used them!

    How about treating others the way you’d want to be treated? What we forget when we hear this homily is that EVERYONE benefits, yourself included.

    I think it is important to be a good listener and think about things from the others person’s perspective before jumping to conclusions or making a decision about something. This will help build respect between coworkers especially with people that you may not know very well or have worked with before.
