Manufacturing Excellence – Inspire, Lead, and Succeed with RESPECT!
“If you have some respect for people as they are, you can be more effective in helping them to become better than they are.”
– John W. Gardner
What does respect mean to you?
Do you ALWAYS treat the people around you with respect?
Do you feel that people respect you?
Do you believe in what goes around comes around?
The great news is that respect is a choice. It’s not an attribute that only a a select few have. The choice is yours as to how you will treat the people in your life. I am always surprised how many people in management positions still feel that they have to resort to yelling as a way to communicate. This is an absolute demonstration of disrespect.
If you want to discover the brainpower of your people, you have to pay them respect. This means to make them feel valued, to ask great questions and listen to what they have to say, and to give them undivided attention. If you respect your employees through sincere face-to-face conversation and listen to what they have to say, the sky is the limit.
