From the Publisher

Want respect from others? Scientific research says, try giving it.

There is power in respect. And it comes with multiple benefits.

In business:

Higher sales Lower employee turnover Less exposure to lawsuits

At home:

A stronger marriage Healthier family dynamics More polite children

In your personal life:

More self-respect and confidence Closer friendships Higher standing in the community

Respect, a lost value in our world today, is the latest subject of research for Inside Edition anchor and best-selling author Deborah Norville. Citing scientific studies and using stories based on personal interviews, Norville makes a compelling case for the Power of Respect—the simple act of treating people as though they really matter.

In The Power of Respect Norville details the specific dollar savings in business and dramatic improvements in student test scores that are directly attributable to respect. She says, "Now that I've seen the research done by some of the greatest minds in the field, I am stunned to see the impact of being respected and giving respect. I am also mystified. Why wouldn't someone want to put it to work?"

Respect tips, sprinkled throughout the text, and Respect Reminders, at the end of each chapter, add to the clarity of the message and help reinforce the personal benefits. Start practicing this most overlooked ingredient of success and find out what it means for you!

The Esquire Guy on the Right Way to Miss a Deadline

The key to missing deadlines is, first, to miss them morally: fully aware of the problems you're causing other people and generally aware of the reason you're missing the deadline. (Note the active voice there. You--or your company--are missing the deadline. The deadline isn't being missed. For example: I am turning this column in late. The column isn't being turned in late. Responsibility must be assumed. And you are the one to assume it. Me, too.) The first part is easy: However much you think you're negatively affecting the party to whom you are not delivering the work, multiply that by thr

Is Your Managerial Ego Too Big?

Principalities are great for stamp collectors. They are less appealing when they exist inside your company, thanks to the manager or staffer who has built his or her own private Luxembourg. It's a phenomenon known in the management trade as "empire building": an urge to create fiefdoms with pumped-up staffs and budgets that match the inflated ego of the perpetrator--and it can sabotage your team, bottom line and worse. "It can kill the company," says Mark Faust, a growth and turnaround specialist at Cincinnati-based Echelon Management International and author of Growth or Bust! "You're lucky i

Why Basing Self-esteem On Money Could Make You Sad

While many people believe making or having more money would make them happier, basing your self-esteem around the pursuit of money could have negative consequences for your mental health, a new study suggests.
