Respect

At any time, we can observe mutual respect when partners welcome, listen and express themselves in a considerate manner. We can also observe the openness to better understand and respect the views, responsibilities and the limits within which partners are evolving. Partners evaluate situations, not people.

Respect for the individual moving toward integration is expressed by the quality of the reception and the attention we give them. Another form of respect is to avoid admonishing someone or making hasty judgements.

Out of respect, we have a responsibility to guard against prejudices and generalizations.
