How Executive Leaders Earn Respect

Whether you are the CEO, COO, or the Vice President of your company, your management style plays a key role in the amount of respect you command from your employees. While the old adage, “Do what I say, not what I do,” can often be considered a privilege of executive power, it is not always the appropriate approach to take when responsible for the work ethics and results of your team. To avoid the negative ramifications often associated with poor executive leadership and to cultivate the respect of your employees, start with these strategic tips that will help you earn the appreciation, loyalty, and hard work from your staff that you deserve:

  • Put in the Hours: While you are an executive and not always subject to the regular hours of your employees, they look to you to set the pace and tone of their own schedule. If they see you working hard and going above and beyond the call of duty to deliver on your promises and responsibilities, they are more likely to be inspired by your positive behavior and respond accordingly. In particular, salaried employees asked to work extra hours for the good of the company rather than for overtime will be more amenable to pitching in when they see their manager or director also there, working with them to get the job done.
  • Be fair: For employees working within the same pay grade and with similar seniority, be sure to avoid unfair treatment. If, for example, an employee repeatedly comes in late, does not perform acceptably, or misses deadlines, allowing them to continue this behavior without consequences demonstrates to the rest of your staff that such behavior is tolerable and even encouraged by management. Reward where appropriate and discipline where necessary.
  • Follow through: To inspire in your employees a sense of responsibility and commitment, and to demonstrate to them that you take them seriously and value their time, exhibit excellent follow through. This can include providing timely feedback on projects that you are overseeing and meeting your own goals and deadlines.

By conducting yourself with the work ethics, responsibility, and leadership that you expect to see in your employees, you will in turn earn the respect of your staff and fellow executive managers and directors.
