"A good leader takes little more than his share of the blame,
a little less than his share of the credit."
-Arnold H. Glasow
Leaders often practice the three R's:-
● Respect for self
● Respect for other
● Responsibility for their actions
To be a true leader, one should have self-respect, respect others, and be responsible for all his actions.
A leader is a courageous and supportive person who supports and encourages people. A true leader supports his team and helps them to exceed their potential.
Some leaders may act as bosses and only give commands and would not support, encourage or help their teams. But a true leader works as part of the team, influences, supports, inspires and encourages the team.
Now, let us talk about the three R's:-
● Respect for all: First of all, self-respect means a feeling of confidence and pride in yourself. Leaders have and need to keep their self-respect. Respecting themselves helps them view their actions and know their abilities, capabilities, and potential. Knowing themselves assists them to do their work efficiently, effectively and conveniently.
● Respect for others: Leaders - not only respect themselves but also other people. Leaders must respect all of their team members so that they all will coordinate and cooperate with them. It helps develop trust and makes a good relationship between the leader and the team. The team will have a positive attitude towards him. Thus, the team will also support, cooperate and coordinate with the leader.
● Responsibility for their actions: Leaders take responsibility for their actions. Taking responsibility will help the leader to improve his leadership. He will be able to do his work more conveniently and will solve problems with ease. Thus, taking responsibility for all their actions is a critical task for the leader.
At last, I would like to conclude my view with a quote.
"Leaders aren’t born they are made. And they are made just like anything else, through hard work. And that’s the price we’ll have to pay to achieve that goal or any goal."
