The way we treat people is almost always reciprocated back to use. You treat people like professionals they treat you like a professional. You give respect, and they give you respect back.
If you treat employees like competent people who’s highly qualified, they dont want to let you down. After all they know you believe in them, and they’ll live up to your treatment.
I was passive (growing up) towards people and it was reciprocated back to me. They passively dealt with me. I was the least of their concerns.
