“If I could sum up why I’m committed to the HR Girlfriends community it would come down to because we are ‘….in this together.'”

~Sana’ Rasul, Chief Girlfriend

Affirmation: Respect is at the core of my professional relationships.

My professional life provides a great platform to develop into an accomplished human being. The people whom I work with are brilliant and worth looking up to.

When I consider the accomplishments of my boss, I am honored to work in his/her presence. I respect the dedication that goes into building a business.

There are many lessons that I learn each day at the office. I soak up all the knowledge that I am exposed to.

I see the value of treating employees and customers with respect. Taking people’s feelings into account is important in any work situation. Although good businesses are run on more than emotion, it has its place.

The types of decisions that I make rely on the support of my colleagues. I am sure to show them that their perspective is important. Listening to what others have to say shows regard for collaboration.

I know that I am able to reach further professionally by taking others along for the ride. Combined skills create more powerful results.

My customers keep the business running. Although their requests are sometimes challenging, I do what I am able to accommodate them.

Today, respectful living is important across all facets of my life. It takes me far and encourages others to trust me. I lead my professional interactions with respect for others.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. In what ways do I show respect to my colleagues when we are off duty?
2. How do I give someone tough business advice without discouraging their efforts?
3. What are some of the tenets of business that I maintain each day?
