Respect is a powerful thing. Yet, you don’t get it just be showing up. You get it by delivering a positive experience, by showing up consistently on time, and by speaking from the heart.
Sure, you can build through power, through coersion, and through bate and switch, but that building will come tumbling down. Building with something other than respect is a doomed short-term strategy. As soon as your competition or a new player comes on scene who is building respect, your base will erode quickly.
Build with respect. Offer a product or service with integrity, deliver with honor, and stand behind every word.
