What place does humility have in leadership?
This week we discuss three different viewpoints on what humility means to leadership, how it affects a leader’s outcome and what can go wrong with it.
Each of has a different view on the question:
Mike: “It’s impossible to grow and mature as a leader without humility.”
Shaun: “There’s a very fine line between humility and imposter syndrome in leadership”
David: “It’s valuable for a leader to realize that humility and confidence are not opposites.”
MM: “Without a leader being able to go to someone and ask for help, I just can’t see a way forward.”
MM: “Why is it so easy to lack self-awareness and be overconfident?”
SP: “Humility is the thing that allows you to think that maybe you’re wrong.”
DF: “If you surround yourself with people who have to do what you say, you can have a little pod of blissful ignorance that you can stay in for quite a long time. That’s not good.”
SP: “Humility isn’t something that shows up on your Whoop or your Garmin.”
DF: “Humility gives you the ability to model accpetance, collaboration and teamwork, but also the after effects of doing those things.”
