Alchemex Values Part 4: Respect by Charles Teversham

One of our core values at Alchemex is respect for others. With all the changes happening within Alchemex, let us never lose sight of this value. “When you treat people with dignity & respect all the time, you can work through anything.” – John Bacon. We all know that we should treat others as we want to be treated, but sometimes we overlook that when we’re talking about respect. It’s definitely not a one-way street. One of the best things you can do to gain respect is to respect others by listening, and being courteous and compassionate. Another way to show respect is by being open-minded. Be willing to afford respect to everyone you encounter, not just clients or those who may be considered in a position of authority, including their opposing opinions, differences and experiences that make them who they are.

The CEO of Deloitte learnt respect from his dad who gave him these 3 rules to live by:

  • Treat others with respect and you can be an effective member of a team.
  • Treat others with respect and you can be a leader.
  • Treat others with respect and you can sell your company’s products and services.

Respect is a very powerful word. It can mean many things to many people. I have a massive respect for everyone in our Alchemex family for the way they conduct themselves, and for the relentless commitment shown to help us get to where we are today. Not only respect, but gratitude as well. I’ll leave you with a parting thought – respect yourself, and others will respect you – it all starts with you!!!!

Let SAGE also acquire our wonderful Alchemex Culture and let us never lose the Alchemex way.
