My question is can one be a contagious leader with power while still earning and developing the respect of those who work with you and who report to you? The resounding answer was absolutely!! Though, I believe it depends on three factors:
- Do you have the right attitude toward what you are doing?
- Do you have the right attitude toward who you are doing it with?
- Do you have competence and enough authority, real or percieved, to weild decision-making power once enough evidence upon which to base a decision has been received?
