Respect is earned

The first rule of leadership is lead by example. I heard it in so many forms during my 5 year in the Army, I can’t possibly footnote it.

Recently, Kellyanne Conway said she was suprised at the disrespect for the president and the office.

And yet here’s this example of how then-candidate Trump showing respect for a certain reporter.

I learned, when the Army gave me a little gold bar to wear on my uniform, that you may be entitled to the trappings of respect- a salute, “Sir,” and all that – but you have to earn respect no matter what your rank.
