8 tips for you to get respect!

It follows that everyone can help themselves to be respected by other people; for example, by offering respectable and respectable services. 8 tips:

  1. I am worth it! If you want to be respected by others, you first have to respect yourself and show that you can't do everything with yourself. This also includes, for example, not letting everything be done with you and sometimes saying “no” if something goes against the grain professionally.
  2. Performance counts! In the workplace one appreciates performance, expertise and communicative competence. The more you bring with you, the higher the reputation you enjoy. Anyone who stands out positively through his outstanding achievements, his performance or his special abilities is rather valued and honored.
  3. Rattling belongs to the craft! But it's not just about good performance - it's also important that you demonstrate it. Because it is not enough to be good, you also have to be able to sell well, so that the others also know what you can do.
  4. How to call into the forest! Other people feel if you respect them or not. And as one calls into the forest, it comes out: so if you want to be respected yourself, you have to treat other people with respect and appreciate their achievements accordingly.
  5. Why courtesy wins: Respectful manners and courtesy also belong to respectful intercourse. Whoever is polite, gives others pleasure. Chefs and colleagues will in turn feel encouraged to treat you politely
  6. Clothes make people: A well-groomed appearance signals “value”. You will therefore automatically be treated with more respect. The message is: I am worth it to dress appropriately. It is worth the job for me to dress appropriately.
  7. Body language: Your body language also has a direct impact on how other people meet you. They are much easier to be positively noticed by others when you radiate self-assurance, openness and friendliness.
  8. I'm me: Probably the most important rule to be respected by others is to be yourself. Say goodbye to the notion of being able to please everyone and to be recognized and loved by all, because the values ​​of your fellow human beings are too different ,
