We’ve all been there. That sinking feeling when someone issues a veiled insult disguised as a compliment or that exasperating moment when you’re interrupted mid-sentence. It’s the subtle sting of disrespect, and it permeates our daily interactions more than we’d like to admit. This episode kicks off with a candid acknowledgment of the impact disrespect has on relationships, both personal and professional. We discuss an insightful listener recommended article highlighting seven telltale signs of disrespect, including ghosting, habitual lateness, and the classic backhanded compliment.

Because at the end of the day, the language of respect is universal, and it’s time we all become fluent.
