Never do to others what you would not like them to do to you.- Confucius
Respect goes both ways. If you respect people, people will respect you back. It is like paying your debt. When banks borrow you money, you pay them back. If not, you have lost the respect they have for you. If you borrow money from the bank, and you pay them back, you have earned their respect.
For business owners, managers, it is important for you guys to love and respect your people. They are all you have. Without great workers, you have no business. When you are nice to them, they will be nice to you, they will be nice to your customers.
Treat people with respect; they will treat you with respect.
