Respect is important, because the lack of it only drives people away and generates demotivation and lack of trust.
The concept of respect involves the different ideas, worldviews, opinions, gender, race, social class, cultural level, sexual orientation and professional experience.
The leader who always acts with respect faces challenges, but never uses cruelty or the power of his office to diminish or differentiate anyone.
Some results of respectful leadership:
- more engagement, commitment and involvement of the team;
- less conflict;
- better organizational climate;
- inspiration for people.
