L.E.A.D.E.R.

The last letter in this word is definitely not the least - it actually is the cornerstone of great leadership if you ask me. "R" stands for "Respect" - which I'm sure you know is earned not demanded...

With all that has been said about Respect, I sincerely believe that: "There is no respect for others without humility in one's self."*

Humility is such a powerful attribute for Leaders.
Respect isn't as much about what you call people as "how" you call them. There are several visible forms of Respect but the invisible ones are more important, more "apparent" & appreciated more...by many - very many.

With a slightly different take to it, Bryant H. McGill said
"One of the most sincere forms of respect is actually listening to what another has to say."
Looks like we've just come full-circle. Yes, a respectful leader is a good listener.**
