Lessons on Leadership from a wise man: Gaining Respect

"When you lose control of your temper, you just lose control. You lose your dignity and the respect of others. We won't have that here. It's dangerous for everyone and bad for morale."

Clay has a beyond excellent set of blog posts up on his blog entitled Gaining Respect. You can find it here: http://cometscorner-clay.blogspot.com/. I highly recommend that readers find the time to read all of the essays; Clay has done a tremendous job. I'm highlighting some of my favorite quotes from the five essays here in this post.

"The way you walk, the way you talk, the way you live, the way you work, the way you dress, the way you laugh, and even what you laugh about are the things that people see. On these things they will judge you."

"Remember that we're all people underneath these uniforms, and you must not attempt to rob a man of his right to the basic amount of respect he should have - as a man."
