Are you a leader, or do you just outrank other people?
Those in positions of authority have the ability to forge the belief system within those they outrank and are meant to serve. When the belief system is one of trust and respect great things can happen...these are key ingredients of servant leadership. When the belief system falls to the level of fear of retaliation and distrust, catastrophic results can occur quickly...hence the arrival of the "yes man" culture. Remember, the higher your rank, the more weight your words and actions have on the belief system within those you outrank...choose your words and actions carefully, as the crew is watching and listening closely to everything you say and do.
