Great leaders understand the importance of great teams. They know how to bring people together to achieve personal and organizational goals. They also know that without great teams, it will be difficult for them to succeed alone.

According to Stephen R. Covey, “Interdependent people combine their own efforts with the efforts of the others to achieve great success.”

So, how do great leaders build great teams? They do it by respecting their people, by not demanding cooperation from their people, by listening to their people, by empowering their people, by engaging their people, by challenging their people, and by rewarding their people.

If you want to get the best out of your people, don’t use force, use respect.

They also bring their people together by focusing on their strengths, not their weaknesses. They never use force to get anything from their people. They know that using force to get something from their people will not yield great results. Instead, it will lead to anger and resentment.

If you want to get the best out of your people, don’t use force, use respect.
