50 Posts 50 Rules: Tom Peters on Leadership #36

36. Leaders give respect. Have you ever heard of transformational leadership?  It is in my estimation the most effective model. It involves the leader helping followers to transcend their own personal goals for a larger meaningful goal. One aspect of the leader in this model is their ability to see the best of their team. When you look at a follower you look past their faults to their unique skills and abilities. You assure them through your eyes and your words your confidence in them. Yes leaders give respect and so much more they give meaning and purpose.

Challenge: Remember the team member you wrote off? The one that couldn’t do anything right, always the pessimist…Yeah them, identify three things in them that they do well and then share with them these things
