Respect seems like a simple concept, but this common-sense behavior is often overlooked in relationships. The problem with showing respect is that it can mean different things to different people. Often, the advice is to treat people the way you want them to treat you, but some people are more sensitive than others. The best way to show respect in a team setting is to demonstrate common courtesy. Being polite will go a long way towards demonstrating respect. Other actions that show respect are:
- Acceptance – Treat all people with dignity.
- Attention – Give individuals your full attention.
- Considerate – Be considerate of the feelings of teammates.
When teammates get to know and understand each other, they will have a better understanding of how to show respect.
