Being a leader is a full-time job and being a respectable one is earned over a period of time and dedication. There are hundreds of books and magazines that describe in lengthy paragraphs what it takes to be a great leader, but very few tell us how to become a respectable one, the ones people look up to. Honestly, it is not easy. Most leaders try to do things they’re not good at, but fail to admit their shortcomings. Even though many leaders understand their business, they don’t understand that relationships are the main reasons why businesses or business people are successful.
