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.
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 audio, 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!

waste of money

What would have made The Power of Respect better?

I cant believe I wasted my credits on this book. It is like listening to a news special in the evening which is not how I like to get my intellectual information. worst of all, it is filled with advertisements for companies who clearly sponsored this book. I felt manipulated and DISRESPECTED having to listen to these advertisements.

What could Deborah Norville have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

get somebody else to read this book who doesnt sound like they are on the evening news. I hate the news. and I hate ads in a book

Any additional comments?

dont waste your money or credits
