Develop respect and trust as a leader using recommendations found in this excerpt from "Millennials into Leadership: The Ultimate Guide for Gen Y's Aspiring to Be Effective, Respected, Young Leaders at Work" by Lisa Orrell.
We all know much has been written on the subject of leadership and many business writers and motivational speakers have codified the attributes they believe are essential for leaders. Frequently, however, their descriptions focus upon traits that make a leader personable, affable and well-liked. It's nice to be liked, but: Leadership is not (just) a popularity contest. As a young leader, you will be faced with making decisions that won't make everyone happy. And that's okay. As long as your employees respect you, the ones who were not happy with your decision will (normally) get over it. We live in a time plagued by cynicism and doubt, especially in regards to leaders and their motives, not only in corporate, but also government. This creates a special challenge for young leaders today who need to be trusted and respected in order to achieve the kind of 'popularity' that will enable them to achieve success, as well.
