Therefore I totally agree that tolerance does not equal respect. When I only feel “tolerated”, or just “put-up with”, I experience “depreciation”. I believe there is a big difference! I would like to hear more about your concept. I plan to speak more about the subject. Thanks! Melanie Sklarz May 31, 2013 at 11:42 am Hi Carl! Paul Meshanko speaks at length about this in his book “The Respect Effect.” A new edition will be released later this summer. Here’s more info! http://respecteffectbook.com/ William Aley April 25, 2014 at 12:48 pm The more I think about how we are expected to create an environment of tolerance the more I see how it easily becomes a pathway to the back of the bus. It becomes apparent that we do not tolerate intolerance, so thus the oppose was necessary when intolerance was a social norm. In 2014, tolerance of someone is less about acceptance and more about “putting-up”. Yjays the problem with illumination of thpought. One the shadows are removed it’s hard to just accept the ‘same old same old’ as OK. For me I would not want to contribute to a work place where I am tolerated 80% of my time while I am at work. Rather, I would much prefer to believe that 80% of my time at work I’m respected for being there. Comments are closed.
