Treating people with respect is part of starting a business
Partners are not numbers in the business graph. They are people of flesh and blood and deserve such treatment. Most people are good people. They don’t ask too much. Just be treated with respect and courtesy. Many people in the world are tired of being treated like little children. I have been able to confirm this all my life.
Remember, people want to treat you. They also have ideas and opinions. And they want to get the impression that they are being treated like smart, mature adults, not school children who need constant supervision and care.
There is no place for prejudice in a successful business
Respecting employees also means offering everyone the same opportunities to succeed. Not everyone gets the same job performance, but the leader will have to offer all team members the same opportunities to succeed.
In our business, each worker’s success is based on their individual performance, regardless of gender, race, or cultural level. For example, we have many women in positions of responsibility who have built their careers and make huge profits thanks to their excellent products and incredible leadership skills. They are judged like everyone else, male or female, black or white, rather than looking at their high level. This should be the only current parameter for advertising and recognition in any business.
Occasionally someone in the company suggested special groups for men only or special meetings for women only. For example, I have been asked to hold regional vice presidents’ meetings for women from “minority groups” or regional vice presidents. Suggestions like these have always been rejected because I believe they create an atmosphere of separation. In our business, regional vice presidents are regional vice presidents, whether men or women, of the majority or minority groups. The qualifications required for everyone, regardless of race or gender, are the same. It doesn’t make much sense to me to classify people into a particular social or moral group. We need to know that to start a business. You have to keep all these in mind.
We must not forget that a major concern as a leader is to build a quality company with the best possible collaborators, regardless of their social characteristics, which is the only important thing.
We need to think about the consequences of our business decisions on our colleagues.
Every time we decide, it is obvious that we should consider the impact on the business. This is often the only thing considered. Indeed. Economic results are important, but we must not forget the human factor in the decision-making process. In addition to thinking about the impact on personal income and benefits, you also need to think about how a particular decision will affect our team.
For example, our business is dedicated to sales and work on commercial commissions. People who have just entered the business may still earn less. From our management point of view, it is easy to pay once a month. We will have less paperwork and save time.
But from a human point of view, this would not be a wise decision, as new ads that have to be tailored to a new type of business and revenue require the security provided by weekly checks. It’s a way to measure your progress from week to week, and it helps you quickly evaluate the results of your efforts. We can be sure that it doesn’t matter for the business but the sales representative, and it’s important to save a few dollars. The bottom line is that to be successful in life. It would help if you worked with your peers.
