Respect

Someone once told me, leaders are born, not made. But someone else also said, leaders can be groomed. The difference between the two, is intricate. Born leaders demand respect. They expect people to respect them, listen to them, do things their way. No questions asked. All based on the premise that the string of letters under their name weighs 1g more. The other kind of leader, well, somewhat earns your respect. Well, even if they are not quite successful, at least they try.

I'm sure everyone agrees that respect ought to be earned. However, I have yet to see it in the leaders who have been at their post for over 2 decades.

"Because I say so..."
"Because my name is boss."
