When there is a high level of trust and respect in any environment, loyalty is extremely high, and employees become very confident because people are treated with courtesy and kindness.
According to Maureen Wild, when employees respect each other and get along in the workplace, it's amazing how productivity increases, morale increases, and employees are more courteous to customers.
A professional and respectful work culture encourages productivity and growth; breeds a healthy, high-trust environment while allowing everyone to become the very best version of themselves. Unfortunately, the opposite is also true; if a leader shows no respect for their team, the organization will become toxic, trust will be eroded, the best people will leave, and the organization will eventually become irrelevant.
This is why influential leaders extend a Circle of Safety to include every single person on their team. As a result, all forms of discrimination, bullying and gossiping are rejected, and as a result, the organization becomes very influential and very profitable.
