Treating all people with kindness and concern
WHAT IS IT?
Treating others with respect means that no matter how we feel about another person, whether we like them or dislike them, whether we agree with them or disagree with them, whether they have treated us with kindness or contempt, we first and foremost treat others with dignity and consideration.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
At the end of the day, clients and coworkers want to feel respected – in their workplace and especially when soliciting help. Showing respect can lead to trust, smooth coordination, and positive overall work environment. By contrast, when people feel as though they have been put down or disrespected, they become irritated and resentful. When that happens, they will either avoid you, criticize you, or become passive aggressive with you. This can harm your personal career or overall firm success.
