Everyone wants respect. From your assistant to the youngest member of your team, to the janitor of the company building, everyone yearns to be treated fairly and politely. But sadly, in reality, not many are willing to give others back the respect they want to be given.

Just as the platinum rule suggests, to be respected, you must first give respect.
