    Harvard Business Review
    Christine Porath writes: "For the last 20 years, I've studied the costs of incivility, as well as the benefits of civility. Across the board, I've found that civility pays.

In a study of nearly 20,000 employees around the world (conducted with HBR), I found that when it comes to garnering commitment and engagement from employees, there's one thing that leaders need to demonstrate: respect."
