Respecting each other means approaching colleagues in a positive manner, regardless of their different use of language, mannerisms, ability, experience or ways of working.
This can be summarised as:
Respecting your colleagues’:
- Strengths and weaknesses
- Culture, religion and sexual orientations
- Learning styles
- Trusting people to do their jobs
- Earning respect through your own attitude
What can you do?
If you would like to implement this value yourself, the following points may help. Listen to colleagues’ opinions and feedback, acknowledging that every person may have an individual view and experience a situation differently. Give feedback to others and remember to say thank you.
