Leading With Humility
As a leader, is it about "me" or "we"?
Do you know how to lead with confidence yet with humility?
How does humility manifest itself in a successful leader?
When you think of world-class leadership what behaviors come to mind...flashy, loud and pushy or strong values, solid, consistent, and honest? Leaders may be different in their demeanor; however, some of the most successful leaders are ones that lead with humility. This does not mean that they don't assert their opinions and expertise, but they understand how to politically maneuver minefields and how to recognize their way the not the only way of doing things. They understand they are fallible and it is with the understanding that they are continually improving and they continue to encourage those around them to be the best they can be. It is their humility that allows people to feel comfortable and confident in their own abilities.
