Respect means seeing the humanity in each individual person.
As a servant leader, you show respect by acknowledging others and initiating contact with them, whether they are friends or strangers. You know the importance of letting others know they are seen and heard, and that they matter simply for being who they are.
Servant leaders can’t afford to ignore or dismiss the people around them. And a respectful attitude isn’t something you can fake; people know when you are being insincere. Showing respect toward others becomes easier when you cultivate a genuine love of humanity.
