Glenn Llopis, in Forbes magazine, outlines five ways leaders can earn respect from their teams:
Consistently Strong Work Ethic; Set The Standard
Respected leaders are those who consistently prove through their work ethic that they are reliable and trustworthy on the
inside and out…
Not Afraid to Take Risks; Admit Wrong Doing
Respected leaders are those who are not afraid to take risks. The other side of this admirable quality is the ability to admit wrong doing.
Sponsor High-Potential Employees; Serve Others Rightly
Respected leaders find ways to discover the best in people and enable their full potential.
Powerful Executive Presence; Long-Lasting Impact
The most respected leaders are the most authentic people. Their presence creates long-lasting impact that leaves a positive mark on the organization and the people they serve.
Have Their Employees’ Backs; Deflect Their Own Recognition
Too many leaders are recognition addicts and want all of the credit. They don’t take the time to genuinely learn about other’s needs.
In the Exchange Essentials article collection, “Building an Effective Team,” Michael Koetje and Peter Blair encourage leaders to take another important step in building the respect of their teams:
“Most leaders develop their own vision and encourage others to join them in attaining that vision. We feel that in order to develop community you must develop a common vision with your staff, one that everyone feels a part of, and thus, empowered to create change to attain that vision.”
