I realize that not all of your grew up in an environment where respect was very important. We had three grandparents living with us so we learned at an early age that not everyone reacts the same way to all situations. We were taught that when someone was crabby or mean that you simply didn't know what was going on in their life. They could be ill, or maybe a close family member had died, or maybe a job loss. You never knew why someone was acting that way so it was best to just be respectful.
When I read the below article it really struck me that this list is a great way for us all to live by. I hope you get something out of it too.
Earning respect is about sticking to your convictions and making the best decisions possible. We asked two workplace experts to share the best and fastest ways to gain your coworkers' respect.
There's a difference between being liked and being respected. Ideally, you'll be both.
Consistently keep your promises
Let your actions speak louder than your words
Help others when they need it
Ask for help when you need it
Say what you mean
Always strive to do better
Admit to your mistakes
Be able to laugh at yourself
Be willing to change your mind
Always do your best to listen well
See the good in everything and everyone
Give credit when it’s due
Know what you stand for in life
Give respect to other people
