Building an awesome team.

Respect their talent. 

Remember, you hired them for a reason. Give them room to breathe and develop their skills. You didn't bring them on just so you can micromanage the hell out of them did you? Remind them often why you hired them and how awesome they are, and mean it.  

Respect their time.

How did you feel when you had to punch a clock? Or that job you (or me) had where you would be fired if you were more than 1 minute late more than one time. Let them work remotely if it's better for their work. Trust that they are doing the best work they can do, and let them do what else they need to get done too. You know dang well that sometimes they will be working late into the night and it will all even out and everyone wins. 

Respect the workplace. 

Protect the culture at all costs, don't let gossip or unresolved conflict destroy the beautiful place you've got going.

Respect their emotions. 

Let people know how awesome they are in front of everyone. Let them know when they've screwed up in your office, with a calm tone of voice. 

Respect yourself.

Trust that you doing what you're meant to do. Bring people in to the team that excel at encouraging others, including yourself. Everyone, and I mean absolutely everyone will perform better if they know that they are loved and respected.
