3. 2nd Semester Staff Behavior Focus: Respect - Honoring myself and what others do and believe. Responsibility - Accountable for your words, for your actions, and for finishing what you start.
The biggest difference between these two character traits is that respect is given and received immediately and responsibility is something we continually work to improve. While some would like to say you have to earn respect, that is not the way it works. Respect must be expected from day one. We should hold ourselves and others to treating themselves and others with respect. Respect is not something we earn. It is something we give and receive. This is one of the hardest character traits to address because it is something we have to consistently work at. It includes complaining about someone, gossiping, using sarcasm, respecting others opinions, etc...
Responsibility on the other hand is something we continually work to achieve. As we work with each other our goal is to continually be more responsible. Be on time, finish what you start, take leadership responsibilities and model responsibility, etc...The hardest component of this characteristic is to be consistent and fair in your expectations and behavior.
