John Maxwell sums up his thoughts on the Law of Respect in one key sentence:
“Followers are attracted to people who are better leaders than themselves.”
As it is rare that someone would follow a leader they do not respect and can easily outperform.
This is why continuing to build your character while you remain a student of leadership is of utmost importance.
And yes, striving to become a better person while constantly adding to your leadership skills might seem like alot of pressure.
The fact is in leadership… pressure is a privilege.
Please never forget that as it pertains to law #7!
