When we talk to people in workplaces, respect always seems to be about the other person – never about me. They tell us lots of stories about disrespectful behaviours of others but few say how they’ve been disrespectful to others. Don't wait for others to respect you first. Gandhi got it right: Be the change you wish to see. Someone has to stop this vicious cycle – and as a leader – it really has to be you!

“R-E-S-P-E-C-T find out what it means to me.” It’s how the old Aretha Franklin song goes! She’s right. We all have very different ideas about what respect is and what respectful behaviour looks like. To work better together, we all need to be on the same page about what respectful behaviour is." Bill Cropper in FactFile-18: The Change Forum

Building Respectful Workplaces -- What this Program is About...

Most teams name ‘respect’ among their top 10 values and lack of it as one of their main bugbears. Codes of conduct implore us to treat others respectfully but the sad part is many of us just don’t seem to know how. Lack of respect spells havoc at work. It fuels resentments and even resignations, poisons our experience of work, robs us of vitality and feelings of self-worth, kills-off trust, ruins relationships and corrodes productivity.

Along with trust, respect is one of the twin currencies of leadership. It’s critical for constructive relationships, great teamwork and inspirational leadership. At the root of it, respect’s a set of learned behaviours, stemming from ingrained emotional and thinking patterns. It’s an attitude, a predisposition, a state of mind that translates into ways of saying and doing you can learn, though these don’t always come naturally.  [Read more in our FactFile on Respect]
