26/58: Respected, not Liked
Part 26 of the excerpts from 100 Ways to Motivate Others
Unconsciously, managers without leadership habits will often seek to be liked.
Rather than holding people accountable, they let them off the hook.
They give the feeling that everything’s fine thus seeking approval rather than success.
This habit has severe consequences; it leads to a lack of trust in the workplace.
A true Leader does not focus on trying to be liked, but on the practices and communications that lead to being respected.
