    There are times that after and encounter with work associates I realize they were not respecting me. So yes it is a good thing to review so you can be aware of ways people do not respect you. Disrespect occurs in the workplace many times, its good to be ready to correct inappropriate statements used to put you down and the other person up.

  2. Good point. Although the book mainly talks about partners in relationships, the principles and the rules apply to all situations where people try to "get the better" of you and be disrespectful. If you learn the basic concepts you can apply them to partners,, parents, siblings, coworkers--etc.


Please be respectful in how you use language.
