The Power of Respect: Benefit from the Most Forgotten Element of Success
Respect can make a meaningful and measurable difference in business, relationships, education, and self confidence. In this keynote presentation, Inside Edition's Deborah Norville describes the root of many of society's ills—a lack of respect—and shares how both giving and receiving respect can impact the following three core areas of an individual's life:
In Business: Employees work longer and harder and are more creative when there is a respectful work environment. Even more stunning are statistics that prove workers who have been respected are less likely to quit and tend not to sue—even when they are fired.
In Education: Norville discusses how respect in schools can help school systems find additional teaching days, simply because time is not spent writing up discipline reports and sending kids to the Principal's office. More impressively, test scores go up. Norville references one institution that was so chaotic it was put on lock down because of a riot in the parking lot; in just three years, the "Power of Respect" made that same school a place kids were sad to leave.
In Relationships: Norville underscores how something as basic as common respect keeps marriages together and can help repair relationships that are broken. She emphasizes that in everyday interactions the "Power of Respect" is potent.
