Humility is not thinking less of yourself but thinking of yourself less. C.S Lewis
At the heart of humility is a desire to serve and a dedication to helping others become great. Unfortunately, many leaders seem to forget that leading others should be held in reverence more than anything else. Being the leader means that you have been placed in a position to serve others.
Too often, I have seen leaders duck and cover, throw their people under the bus, throw their positional weight around, and instead of leading from a place of service, lead from a place of ego when things get rough.
Never confuse humility with weakness; as a matter of fact, it takes great strength of will and character to put the needs of others before your own. To admit your mistakes, to be vulnerable, transparent, and fallible in front of your team.
Humble leaders exhibit behaviors that lift their team’s spirits, self-esteem, and confidence to achieve anything imaginable.
