Have you ever seen how a lack of respect can ruin the culture of an organization or a family? When people don’t respect each other, they lose an appreciation for each other. And that can devolve into nasty personal relations—all because people did not respect each other.
Respect has become a hot topic within the realm of leadership development. At the 2017 Global Leadership Summit, Bill Hybels listed ten rules of respect that can apply to any group of people at work or home.
Here are the “Respect 10” that Bill Hybels presented as I have interpreted them. How many of these have you instituted in your home or workplace?
Your leadership ability is tied to your identity. You will never be able to lead anyone beyond where you see yourself. You must believe you can do something before you can lead anyone else to do it. Who you think you are will determine how you lead.
People will want to follow you if you can teach them how they can become better than they are. That starts with cultivating a belief in who you can become—based on God’s word—so you can help others believe who they can become.
To improve how you lead, use these Scriptures to cultivate your belief in who you can become.
