The Respect Effect is a must read! It provides a unique perspective on how to leverage human nature and neuroscience to maximize employee engagement and business results. It's a practical how-to, and also a fascinating in-depth review of how our brains work when it comes to connecting or disconnecting in the workplace. Think Malcolm Gladwell meets Stephen Covey. What's more, its principles can extend far beyond the workplace to all of our interpersonal interactions and relationships. Truly essential reading material for anyone in the field of Human Resources, anyone tasked with managing others, and anyone who cares to understand the dynamic interplay between our brains and our interpersonal skills.

I'm not sure if the universe put me in the right place at the right time or if I was just witness to the emergence of a cultural transformation. In any case I was very much ready for the lesson. Paul Meshanko got it right with this concept. Respect is more powerful than tolerance. It does take work to be come a respectful person. Any one can say that they are tolerant of something, Crazy Aunt Marge who lives with 30 cats and has long happy conversations with them, we have to tolerate Marge because of who she is at her face value, the crazy Aunt. But when you learn that Marge has struggles and pitfalls and bumps in the road that she deals with on a daily basis. The adversities and challenges are not enough to stop he they motivate her to usefulness. That she has peers and contemporaries, people that like her and confide in her. Eventually we learn to respect her for her convictions and understand that she is doing the best that with what she has. Respect builds patience. Eventually we don't ever remember what it was like when she wasn't always around. Maybe if we listen and observe we might even learn something from her that we didn't even know we needed to know it. Thats what it's like to read the respect effect. As I progressed through it, it made sense. In my agency, right in the middle of our civil right's policy was the sentence 'Develop an environment of tolerance' I know it's just a word but who's tolerating whom? why doesn't it say "create an environment of respect" ? Thanks Paul, your vision has become a second sight to me. Looking at the way my brain works and the messages I receive does impact my perspective.

The Respect Effect is one of those books that I have read multiple times which is very unusual for me. The content both gave me new things to think about as well as giving me a gentle nudge on things I needed to brush up on. Written as if I was sitting across from Paul at a coffee shop, the book is filled with personal stories and case studies that really helps you see how the content can be applied in real life. This is not only a great read for anyone looking to increase the Respect Effect in their workplace - it also applies to personal relationships as well. After reading it twice (and filling it with pink highlighter) I have now loaned it to my husband who is also seeing ways to apply the practice of respect in his workplace as well. Highly recommended.

Michele
