The Sequence of Respect

I have watched teammates and team leaders work hard to earn the the respect of their teams. Some succeed and others consistently do not. Those that succeed seem to understand that respect is received only after it is consistently given. The choice to be respectful should never be conditional on the respect received. Teammates that give respect will be respected far more than those who demand it. It’s never respectful to demand the respect of others.
