My list of personal virtues and values starts and ends with respect. To make it anywhere in this world you need to respect others, the environment and yourself. Respect of others is basic. Listen to their thoughts and ideas. Don’t belittle them. If for no other reason, respect them as a person. Respect your environment. Your environment can be your home, your office, any space you function in. Show respect for your surroundings and it well tell a lot about you. Finally respect yourself. That will show eventually show in your work and your interactions with others. If you cannot respect yourself, how can you expect anyone else to respect you?
In between the start and end I would put, integrity, patience, reliability and loyalty. All are important elements not only for work, but for life.
