The speaker introduces the powerful concept of respect as the cornerstone of a healthy workplace culture. Respect is presented in a simplified new light, covering the basic concepts that govern respect, the principles that govern factors that explain the way you gain and lose respect, and the practices that enable a person to maintain respect - in an increasingly diverse workplace. All the principles and concepts presented are research-based and are rooted in the EKTIMIS Respect Model - a powerful framework for learning and teaching respect (developed by the speaker). The speaker engages the use of relate-able stories and examples to illustrate each aspect of the insightful topic. Past audiences have been amazed at how little they understood about the topic of respect before their participation in this original presentation, and have left inspired, renewed, and energized - with a positive shift in attitude. This speaking program may be provided in a variety of formats, including Keynote, town hall (interactive), or seminar (instructional / workshop) style. A format that best meets the client's needs and requirements is selected or proposed. Audiences typically receive a copy of the book, The Top Ten Laws of Respect in the Workplace - A Professional Guide, authored by the speaker - if the speaking program can accommodate it. The speaker usually works to make this happen.
