  • Showing Respect for Others is Part of Your Personal Brand

    Respectful photo from ShutterstockConsistently Follow the Golden Rule: What you want for yourself, you give to others. Do right and do it consistently in how you think, act, and interact with people.

    Over the years there are versions of the “rule” that I’ve heard from colleagues. Pick one that rings true for you:

    • Do what’s right for the other person, and you’ll end up doing what’s right for you
    • Do unto others what you would have them do unto you
    • Be good to people, and they will be good to you
    • Treat all people as you would like to be treated
    • Good works on Earth align you in the right way with the universe
    • You never want to do unto others what you would not want done unto you
    • What is hateful to you, do not do to others
    • As a leader, always be more than is expected of the people you’re working for and who are working for you
    • You can’t ask others to do what you aren’t willing to do yourself
    • Treat people like you want to be treated
    • Do unto others before they split
    • How would you want to be treated (or how would you want your mother, your son, to be treated)?
    • Treat others as they would like to be treated
    • Don’t repeat what you didn’t like done to you
    • Expect from others what you expect from yourself

    Any version works for giving the respect due to others – as good leaders do.
