Respect can be heard in a person’s tone of voice, in their nonverbal communication, and in how they address you.

Your habits also can showcase respect for others.

Here are some of the habits that I choose to practice:

 Keeping the phone screen facing down during a meeting to avoid interruption and also to indicate to the other person, “I am listening”.

 Refrain from sending work text messages or emails after office hours unless truly necessary. I choose to put both my text messages and emails in a draft mode the night before and hit the send button the next day at 830am (weekdays)

 Be early for my appointments and if I call for the meeting, I offer to buy coffee.

What are some of the positive habits that you practice to help cultivate healthy work and a social environment with others?
