How Outstanding Leaders Generate Respect

What exactly is respect? And how do outstanding leaders manage to generate respect?

Respect is a feeling we have about another person. So, what is it about that person that causes us to have the feeling of respect for them?

The feeling of respect comes from the qualities and behaviours that the respected person exemplifies. In other words if someone always demonstrates great courage, we respect them for their courage. If history demonstrates that a person is right more often than not we respect them for their judgment and foresight.
