4 Ways to Earn Respect from Your Teammates and Employees
If you want to be an effective leader, team leader, or coach, earning the respect of your teammates and employees should be a top priority.
Your growth around leadership gives you the ability to achieve your own new heights and expansion beyond what you previously thought possible. Let this leadership piece give you freedom, fun and fuel for a new you.
Here are four ways to earn respect from those with whom you work:
You know what it feels like to work with someone who listens to your ideas, suggestions, and concerns, and what it feels like when your boss shuts you out. The number one thing that you can do to earn respect is to keep an open mind and open ear with teammates or employees have something to say. Make an effort to schedule one-on-one meetings with each member of your team on a regular basis.
You will not gain trust or respect by glossing over bad news or hiding the truth about a situation from your team. Not only do you need to remember to tell the truth to your teammates and employees, but also to your supervisor as well (if applicable).
Don’t Abuse Your Position of Power
The fact that you are in a higher position than some other people at your place of work should not be used to force things to go your way. Having the power that you do is a privilege; do not abuse it.
Admit Your Mistakes
Everyone appreciates working with someone who can admit when they are wrong. If you make a mistake, own up to it and take responsibility.
