Whether in the workplace or in a relationship, here are the ways confident women command respect:
They are inclusive–encouraging those around them and acknowledging the value of each person they come in contact with.
They are organized–prioritizing important tasks. They dress for success and are committed to the projects they undertake.
They don’t gossip–talking about others behind their backs is tacky. It shows disrespect.
They own up to their mistakes: Perfection doesn’t exist. They learn from their experiences and move on.
They are patient–respecting differences between people and continuing to praise them for good work.
They’re rarely late: Whether turning in a report or meeting with friends, promptness is important to them.
They are positive: Negative energy will drive others away. They keep an open mind and don’t let the “small stuff” consume them.
