10 Small Ways to Gain Respect as a Leader

 10 Small Ways to Gain Respect as a Leader

10. Be Congruent at All Times

Are what you say and what you do the same? It’s amazing in corporate America how many leaders send mixed messages. For instance, consider the manager who says he wants ideas from his staff and then proceeds to put down every idea brought to him.

Without respect, it could be difficult for you to accomplish your job. Marilyn Johnson, owner of a small computer company in Indianapolis, shares her quest for respect: “I was so enthusiastic when I started my company that I tried to do everything for everyone. I spent all day telling my employees how to do their jobs. After two years, my employees started leaving in droves. One man told me he just didn’t respect a leader who couldn’t let go.”
