Respect involves a manager’s perceived attitude toward the individuals he leads. You may highly esteem your team members, but if they don’t perceive that esteem — if it is contradicted by your failure to share goals, your unwillingness to become involved, your inability to exercise patience — you communicate disrespect. Successful coaches show respect by listening,questioning, praising, teaching, providing information. Without respect, the employee is less likely to listen or hear guidance. Knowing he is respected, he will be better able to become involved, share insights and take risks.
