Respect Me- Please! Turn Grumblings into Respect

The key to successful leadership today is influence, not authority.
Great Leaders influence others by recognizing and appreciating them in a personalized and genuine way.

We all need acknowledgement. We won’t die without it, but it really makes a difference in our personal satisfaction (and in our productivity!) when we know other people appreciate the job we’re doing. Most people don’t get enough appreciation; in fact, it is one of the main reasons people leave their work.

Sadly, the old saying is on target:  It is the squeaky wheel that gets the grease . . . while the other three wheels, all doing a great job, get no attention at all!  It is difficult to notice the absence of a negative condition.
