3 Simple Steps to Increase Respect at the Office

Fishbowl CEO David K. Williams’ book, The 7 Non-Negotiables of Winning: Tying Soft Traits to Hard Results, has many practical applications for businesses.

We’ve prepared several videos that share some of these applications. The first one is entitled “How To Have Respect In The Office.” Williams, himself, explains three simple ways to show people respect at work.

I picked out three steps from the video that you can take to increase respect in your office. Watch the video and then see if you caught the same three things, which I’ve listed below.

Here are the three steps I gleaned from the video:

1. Learn people’s names.

2. Make time to get to know the people around you.

3. Show genuine interest in people and be honest with them.

Doing these three simple things can open up communication between departments and make your company a friendlier and happier place to work.

Come back next week for another video in this series on how paired leadership works.

    Great insight on a great video. I just want to honestly point out how hard remembering every ones name might be. Especially when you are working in a growing business. It is worth the time and effort however.
