Respect, a word that is often thrown about very loosely, as much as it is often used very strongly, is a very important concept in life. Everyone desires respect; however, not everyone understands the concept at an adequate and equal level. Many wrestle with it or take the issue of respect for granted.
In The EKTIMIS Respect Model – A Powerful Resource and Guide, author and continuous improvement expert Niyi Taiwo presents and explains a visual and simple illustration (the EKTIMIS Respect Model) that helps a reader to understand the major components (the constructs) of the concept of respect. The model shows the relationship between the components and provides a comprehensive, yet simple, roadmap for parents, teachers, trainers, mentors, managers, and other advocates of respect.
The model takes an arguably complex topic and simplifies it in a manner that provides clarity and that paves the road for effective learning, enhanced teaching methods, new training techniques, and development of new lessons on respect. Use this comprehensive guide, along with the EKTIMIS Respect Model artifact and/or poster, to:
improve learning skills
- enhance your teaching techniques
- develop and support new training techniques
- identify knowledge gaps and develop additional respect lessons
- plan and develop a comprehensive body of respect lessons that fit your needs and audience
The EKTIMIS Respect Model currently serves as the primary reference framework for many of the EKTIMIS Top Ten Laws of Respect books, articles, and innovative artifacts (respect-themed framed pictures).
