How do you teach respect? How do you help instill the concept of respect in a child, a teenager, a student, a mentee, or perhaps a young adult? The traditional age-old approach has been to instill or demonstrate good (or proper) behavior and action – that engender respect. But, what if you had a map or an instructive guide – something that provides a blueprint to help you become a better and more effective instructive parent, guardian, teacher, mentor, role model or manager! There is such a map and blueprint – a tool called the “EKTIMIS RESPECT MODEL”, (ERM). In this engaging and innovative program the speaker introduces the EKTIMIS Respect Model (ERM), the powerful, graphical (visual) illustration of the concept and principles of respect developed as part of a multi-year research study led by him. He systematically walks through the ERM framework in a manner that breaks down the concept of respect and illustrates the various constructs - of respect, providing insight into the two kinds of respect, the ways in which respect is manifested, the factors that drive the ways we manifest respect, and much more. Furthermore, for audiences that work in an educational environment or a professional learning environment, the speaker may (optionally) facilitate a discussion that unveils creative and effective methods and techniques, for the audience’s specific environment, for developing specific lessons about respect - using the ERM as a guide. This inspirational speaking program is highly instructional and is best suited for a learning organization, an educational audience, a parenting group, or a professional development audience. It is offered in a town hall (interactive) delivery format or a seminar (instructional / workshop) delivery format.
