The greatest ability in business is to get along with others and to influence their actions.
—John Hancock (by John Singleton Copley; Public Domain)
True leaders don’t bark orders, they positively influence the actions of others toward a common goal. The former creates an atmosphere of distrust and apathy, while the latter makes people feel good about themselves while they work to accomplish the desired results. In fact, the more one demands respect as “the leader,” the less of it they will receive.
