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. All too often, I have seen a certain level of arrogance and entitlement exhibited by people in leadership positions that seek to tear people down as opposed to lift people up.
Leaders don't strike people down with belittling comments, and never intentionally try to place you in an embarrassing or demeaning position. They show a genuine interest in you personally and professionally by asking, "How are you?" or "How's your family?" while listening and expressing real concern to your situation.
It is so crucial that leaders recognize this and imprint this into their subconscious. Leadership is all about people; no one is an expert on everything, and you cannot grow an organization if you don't have a group of people who are inspired every day to make a difference.
