More people quit jobs because of a boss who makes them miserable. And why does failing leadership and mediocre cultures make employees miserable and want to quit? Lack of respect.
"One of the best forms of respect is actually listening to what another has to say." - Bryant H. McGill
Respect begins with the self but should be complimented with a heavy dose of humility and love. Employees thrive when valued, appreciated and heard. We must listen. Respect is, however, a two way street. Respect invites respect.
When leadership respects their teams, they establish a platform that invites more participation and commitment. A respected employee feels valued and important. A respected employee will be more loyal, more productive and simply put... better.
Probably the most effective way to show respect is to listen and hear what a person has to say or offer. Empower your employees by listening and making them feel respected. It's that simple.
The effort required to show respect is zero. The ROI is limitless - guaranteed!
