The Myth of Respect In The Workplace

Coming from the Western culture, George often sees respect as accepting that people have opinions and how it’s important to express them. They also have a common understanding that at times, it’s only business and it’s nothing personal. However, as a leader of a multicultural team, he soon realizes that the Eastern form of respect is based on power-distance. What does that really mean and how does one learn to be respectful in the workplace? Which culture would make the cut, in today’s time and age? George Aveling, Group CEO and International Partner of TMI Consultancy Sdn Bhd talks to Freda Liu about this controversial topic of respect in the workplace.
