If agencies promote leadership positions they must have an expectation they chose the right person for the right reasons. Often times some promoted into leadership positions feel they deserve the respect of their subordinates rather than earn it. True respect is respect of the man/woman and not the expected respect of the rank. Leaders must continue to improve upon their knowledge and skills and not feel with promotion comes a greater intelligence. Often times leaders believe they should be followed just to be followed rather than lead by example.
