Respect Is Something You Earn

Too many people feel that having a position of leadership and authority is their God-given right. They feel superior to those in their employ or at so-called lower levels in the organization. I have often seen a certain level of arrogance and entitlement exhibited by people in leadership positions that seek to tear people down instead of lift people up.

Leaders treat everyone with dignity and respect. They don't strike you down with belittling comments and never place you in an embarrassing or demeaning position in front of others, whether colleagues or clients. Instead, they show a genuine interest in and concern for others.

According to Jenny Garrett, treat people the way you want to be treated. Talk to people the way you want to be talked to. As a leader, respect is never given, it is earned.

Is the “p” in “Resect” in the title of this blog entry left out to send a message? That without a focus on people, there is no respect? Or a simple omission? Either way, enjoyed the article. Thank you.
