Leadership Minute: Show Respect


Respect for ourselves guides our morals; respect for others guides our manners. – Laurence Sterne

Respect is an essential skill for leaders.  Self-respect guides your morals and is the lens through which you see the world around you and how you respond to it. Respect for others guides how you lead others. Whether or not you like a person is not as consequential as how you treat them. You can’t win them over if your manners are rude. It’s as you respect yourself and respect others you can be the effective leader you desire to become. If you want to be respected as a leader, be a leader that shows respect. It’s that simple.
