Treating others with kindness and consideration
What is it?
Treating others with respect means that, whether friend or foe, agree or disagree, history of kindness or of contempt, we first and foremost treat others with dignity and consideration.
Why is it important?
At the end of the day, people want to feel respected in their workplace. This can lead to trust, smooth coordination, and a 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 team success.
