Earning Respect - by Ravi Patel

 

Business leaders might accept not being loved, but they would definitely like to be respected. Entrepreneurs are no different.

 

Respect though is earned not by the title of a leader's position, but by his or her actions, behavior, and consistency of decisions. Business leaders have to prove themselves to their employees to earn respect.

 

One's position allows you to command and direct subordinates to do certain things. Having their respect will make them more willing and happier to carry out their tasks for you. In the long term, earning the respect of your employees builds lasting loyalty.

 

So as business leaders and Entrepreneurs do what is necessary to gain respect by how you treat people, make decisions, and carry yourself. If you respect your people, they in turn will do the same.

 

Do the Right Things!
