A parent or teacher who treats a child with dignity builds the self-esteem of the child and automatically increases the child's performance, which generally improves the child's conduct. An employer who treats employees with respect and dignity builds loyalty and increased productivity.
You treat another person, regardless of age, with dignity when you courteously listen to him or her and respond in a thoughtful manner. You treat others with dignity when you show them respect, regardless of their occupation, sex, race, creed or color. And when you treat others with respect and dignity, your own self-respect and sense of dignity improve.Simplicity and dignity make a powerful combination. When you strive for dignity and use simplicity as a yardstick, you've just elevated your possibilities for accomplishment.
