Treating others as you wish to be treated is as vital in the workplace as it is on the playground. We teach our children to be kind, humble and polite to others. We tell them to think before speaking. We talk with them about the importance of honesty and trust. We ask them to think about how certain actions can hurt other people’s feelings. We instill in them the values of sympathy and empathy.
If we show human kindness and consideration to our family members, it should be second nature at the office. For instance:
“Transparency, honesty, kindness, good stewardship, even humor, work in businesses at all times.” -John Gerzema
