"Respect .... is fundamental. Respect leads to trust, integrity, honesty and ultimately success in business and in life. Respect is earned through honest, thoughtful, and open two-way communication. Respect is demonstrated, for example, through giving your undivided attention while someone is talking to you instead of typing on your laptop or blackberry. There are many simple things we can all do that can make a big difference in how the people around us feel."
-- Dick Millman, President and CEO of Bell Helicopter in a recent article
