While this book does an excellent job in identifying why respect is essential to productive teamwork, it goes much beyond that endeavor in providing critical best practices for optimal management of an enterprise. Very effective processes are provided for optimal team management, financial analysis, and the what, whys , and hows of tackling challenges...under the umbrella of instilling respect even under tense situations. What makes this book even more credible, are the inputs of several CEOs and other experts on these key subjects so the reader can look at real life situations vs just theories. This is a short ,must-read , practical guide for new senior executives, and those experienced execs who need to build more dynamic organizations .

I loved that this book skipped the tired business cliches and delivered lots of practical examples of how to motivate others and become a more effective leader. There are interviews with top executives that give real-world examples that are very helpful- like how to listen and communicate with people in your organization to help everyone achieve success. It honestly reminded me of the best business classes I ever took--interesting, inspiring and best of all, USEFUL.

It is refreshing to see someone provide business leaders a highly achievable roadmap to sustained success. Many leaders fail to appreciate that how results are obtained is as important as the fact that you are successful in the first place. On a daily basis, understanding your emotions and how they impact you and your ability to get things done is an overlooked aspect of success. In terms of communication and listening, far to often leaders ask their people to do things that are extremely difficult or to change without conveying the underlying reasons driving the request and listening to the feedback about how it affects the organization. If you understand and follow the RESPECT principles you will find that your team and organization are more united, more motivated and ready to support the challenges that you will confront.

This book gives many real life examples of how a leader should consider others working underneath them when communicating their business decisions. It shows you with examples on how you can use respect to get the most productivity out of your workforce while letting them feel comfortable that they are an important part of the process.

Charles Leichtweis does an outstanding job of relating many aspects of business that are taken for granted.
His book is a must read for all new executives that goes into details about what to expect and how to handle various aspects of day to day business issues. Appreciated his experiences and the many executives that he interviewed to describe how they approached and answered day to day problems in their own companies.

The book provides both tools and examples based on genuine experiences, regarding the importance of respect in the workplace. It's relevance stretches from the shop floor to the board room, as well as, in everyday life. Charlie Leichtweis does a good job of emphasizing the importance of respect, especially with his experiences and the anecdotes of various executives, but I felt like Charlie himself had more to tell. It is a reminder of how important it is for leaders of organizations to lead by example, especially in today's world of immediate results expectations and social media pressure. It's a quick read, with useful insights.

Respect is absent in many corners of society today - the bottom line seems to be more important than relationships, particularly in a lack of taking care of employees. Charlie weaves personal stories of his own experiences in the corporate environment in with the anecdotes from numerous corporate leaders to focus in on the clear benefits of letting your company succeed on the coattails of respect. This book is appropriately short and accessible for all readers.
