podpostheadThe Gift of Dignity

Open Recognition of Respect

Season 1, Episode 10


T his episode begins with a heart-warming story about a young teen learning an important life lesson about dignity from an unexpected source. The podcast elaborates on the theme of innate goodness and how each person deserves proper treatment even when it may not seem natural or deserved. Dignity is not a quality that has to be earned; rather it is a gift that is given from a heart of decency.

Something to Think about

In this episode, we identified that:

  • Dignity simply is. It is not an earned quality.
  • Whether you know it or not, your understanding of dignity is demonstrated many times each day in the way you treat others.
  • Being a giver of dignity makes you a more content person.


Let’s Talk

One of the most important aspects to positive change is communication and questions are the best way to gain deeper insights and develop more innovative solutions. So each week, I ask a question.

“In your past, what experience have you had that highlighted the importance of recognizing human dignity?”
