Promotionsstipendium der Kühne Logistics University (2015)

From my perspective, respect is one of the most important components in life and unfortunately I am often experiencing a lack of respect in dealing with other people, animals and nature . Whether for business or personal life, as a manager or an employee, with friends or strangers , with more respect in daily interaction but also in political and economic decisions, our society and the world would certainly do a lot better. Therefore I am happy to be part of the RespectResearchGroup, learn more about respect and let the new findings feed into my own research contribution.
