Danielle Grant, a director of LeaderShape, discusses how leaders can earn respect and loyalty
By Danielle Grant, Director, LeaderShape
Leadership and management are two entirely different (but complementary) things but, too often, effective leadership is simply assumed to result from good management practice. This isn’t the case.
In the past, it was believed that invariably a leader must know everything and tell people what to do. This may have worked once, but society has moved on and leadership practices now need to catch up. Leaders need to earn the respect and loyalty of their followers, even as their desire for continuous learning, engagement, involvement and recognition increases.
