How do I get people to respect me as a leader?

By Ben Beckhart

While I was growing up I believed that earning respect as a leader was showing that I was stronger, smarter, more knowledgeable, and charismatic. I even thought that being feared would earn me respect as a Leader.

I was wrong.
I learned that I could earn respect by having my behaviors be an example of genuine selfless, humble yet courageous behaviors, among others.

And importantly, I learned that treating everyone with trust, dignity, and respect earned me the same as a leader.
