Respect

”Every human being, of whatever origin, of whatever station, deserves respect. We must each respect others even as we respect ourselves.” –Ralph Waldo Emerson

This month’s blog post subject is respect. Respect is the foundation of every relationship both personal and professional. Having respect in the business world means that you honor your role in fulfilling the needs and solving the problems of your employer or your clients. Often times when business or personal relationships sour, the cause can be traced to a lack of respect which prevents one from recognizing and appreciating the problems or needs that an employer or client is trying to fulfill.

“Respect your fellow human being, treat them fairly, disagree with them honestly, enjoy their friendship, explore your thoughts about one another candidly, work together for a common goal and help one another achieve it. No destructive lies. No ridiculous fears. No debilitating anger.” –Bill Bradley

Creating positive relationships with the people and striving to understand them, is essential to all aspects of your life, both professional and personal. It will also open your business up to new opportunities. When you respect others, they will respect want to work with you.
