Is Chivalry Dead?

No, but it's on life support... defines chivalry as: the qualities idealized by knighthood, such as bravery, courtesy, honor and gallantry towards women.

How is this different from the business world?

OK, not all business deals with women, but have you ever thought how much more productive companies would be if they treated everyone with respect?
It starts at the top. Leaders set the example by how they treat peers, employees and customers.
People don't listen to what leaders say as much as they watch what they do.
In ways we are all leaders. It doesn't matter what rank, gender or race you're dealing with. Next time, try being "chivalrous" and watch your results improve...
When's the last time you've experienced chivalry in the workplace?
