“Correction does much, but encouragement does more.” – Goethe

R-E-S-P-E-C-T – Now that you have the song stuck in your head…

Is respect for you or others? Most of the time respect is often wanted instead of being given. Do you subconsciously find yourself wishing you were given more respect? Like many other areas of leadership, I believe respect falls into the area of servant leadership. It has to be about others before it can be about you. In some ways, two-way respect is beginning to fade. As leaders, how we give respect tells a lot of our leadership mindset. Let’s make sure we are showing and giving respect. If we do not, we are certain never to receive the respect we believe we should have or even earn.
