Today’s leaders face unprecedented challenges whether they are leading a government agency, a non-profit or a corporation. Add to that a pandemic, evolving technologies, demanding consumers and disagreeing citizens just make it more difficult than ever to lead. Instead of looking for new approaches to leadership, Re-Thinking Humility suggests that we need to get ‘back to the basics’ with what some refer to as the most important virtue of all – humility. It’s not just present in our greatest leaders, it’s essential. And, it’s a more nuanced concept that suggests a framework to transform the way we live and lead.
Humble leaders step back from the spotlight, put others first, they’re accurate in assessing their abilities and they open themselves to influence by others.
In short, humble leaders build cultures that promote psychological safety, encourage participation and increase employee engagement. Arrogance, selfishness, self-promotion and close-mindedness may get you to the top…they don’t keep you there or get you the results that create cultures that are built to last.
