Deference

Deference is manifested in a number of ways:

  • Respectfulness
  • Humility
  • Intense listening
  • Empathy
  • Expressed vulnerability
  • Serving
  • Transparent interactions
  • Sharing
  • Giving
Many of my personal heroes commit most, if not all, of these acts of deference as a matter of course.  In fact, as I reflect on their behaviors it is apparent to me that they have simply turned these notable acts/behaviors into habits.  

Pretty nice list of things to work on for getting better, every day, on purpose, huh?
