Respect is earned by your actions – and needs to be maintained and enhanced by continued excellence. ~ Norman Marks, World Class Internal Audit tweet
When I read this quote, I couldn’t help but think of Cartman on South Park:
How many times have we seen someone who expects respect, but didn’t do anything to deserve it? Well, have we as Internal Auditors done this? I’m sure I have from time to time during my career.
To have someone’s respect, you have to earn it. Once it is earned, you have to keep re-earning it. Much like trust, it is a valuable commodity that makes what we do possible. You need the stakeholder’s buy it to get things done. Respect is a big part of getting that buy in.
