Fairness and Equal Treatment

This post is Part Six of The Hart Technique Leadership Series.

The concept of fairness is something that is instilled in us from our earliest of years. This sense of fairness, a concept that is often hard to define, appears to be ingrained within our DNA fabric.

From a leadership perspective, it is vital that a leader acts in a way that communicates fairness, for acting outside of this social expectation, one can lose respect from those who follow them and can create an environment of distrust, resentment and eventual mutiny.

Preferential treatment of one employee or colleague over another is simply unfair and will erode the trust and goodwill that is so vital to the success of a company.

Strong leaders strive to treat all parties equally and hold each person within an organization, collective or group to the same set of standards, regardless of who they are and where they fit within the companies hierarchical structure.

Abiding by such a principle, as a leader, will earn you the trust and respect of those who follow you. Not investing in fair and equal treatment will erode the foundation of your leadership efforts.
