Respect is sometimes only good as far as up the ladder

A leader who is feared, will constantly be the target of assasination.

If I were a leader of any sort, I'd want my followers to follow me out of respect, not out of fear. People would probably have more motivation that way, and there'd be less chance of them staging an overthrow.

Respect. Having someone fear you will not guarantee loyalty. If you were to be in a serious situation, those who fear you would not rescue you, those who are loyal to you will.

It really depends... But in majority of situations, I would say to fear. But again fear can bring wars and nobody likes wars >.> but respect also, because the person can be weak even if respected. Still, respect is more positive than fear. Ugh... Really good question indeed ^^;
Whatsoever people will be tempted to choose fear because they don't really care if they're loved by their people or even respected. Control is what lead everything and you get it by fear. Human being is very selfish, know that.
So my answer is Fear. ( even if I prefer respect, which is in an ideal world...)

As a leader? Discard titles. You as a leader, what do you want? I want fear. People will rebel and give me a gruesome death in the end. But that's an even end. As a respected leader you do nothing but give.

Leadership is a bad model regardless, so I don't have any interest in which form of it works better.

Respected. I would say trusted that might be considered a sign of respect.

It's definitely better to be respected.
More people would follow the one whom they respect than the one whom they fear.
