Each minute of our life is a lesson but most of us fail to read it. I thought I would just add my daily lessons & the lessons that I learned by seeing the people around here. So it may be useful for you and as memories for me.
“Intellectually, mentally, and spiritually, woman is equivalent to a male and she can participate in every activity.” But ….
Woman don’t always get the respect that they deserve. This being said, it is this articles opinion that there are many who do respect woman, although perhaps they do not know how to show it properly. Here are a few steps and tips. Please keep in mind that this article is for showing respect to all woman, not just a special one or two.
Don’t talk with your back to her and make eye contact. Remember that it is very important to face the direction of your conversation and make eye contact with woman that is either talking to you or when you are talking to them. People tend to become relaxed around familiar people and as such we sometimes forget the small things.
Don’t interrupt her. Let her finish talking to you and then reply, even if half way through you think you know where the conversation is heading. Chances are she is talking to you about a subject because it is important. By listening to her you can acknowledge that her information is important to you. Also you might find that you missed out on an important point that she might have picked up about the subject of conversation.
Give valid arguments. When in conversation about a certain topic, give valid arguments about the points raised. Don’t insult a woman’s intelligence by being sarcastic about the subject because you might believe that she wouldn’t know about it.
Give constructive compliments. When a woman does something or add to something that helped anything improve, acknowledge her for it. It doesn’t always need to be done publicly unless the rest of the team gets praised the same way. Recognize her verbally or via email or what ever means you see fit and proper for the work that she has put in to it.
Ask her opinion about important matters. There is nothing in this world that feels better than when you are sitting at work and someone in a higher position comes up to you and seriously asks for your opinion, listens to you and thanks you for your input. (this doesn’t just apply to woman, but to most men too)Even at home, let her know that her opinion counts and that her input is taken seriously.
