Want to be respected as a leader? It won’t come easily. It’s not freely given. Yet it’s not complicated either.
Here are 5 do’s…then 5 don’ts of gaining respect as a leader:
Don’t be someone you’re not
Don’t commit to more than you can do
Don’t suppress people
Don’t use people for personal gain
Don’t take out your pain on others.
Do be yourself
Do what you say you will do
Do empower people
Do help people achieve their goals
Do help others recover from their pain.
