Humility and Leadership

Harry Truman once said, “You can accomplish anything in life, provided that you do not mind who gets the credit.”

Here’s great advice from the Leadership Freak on an important element of leadership…… Humility!

I’ll never forget G.J. Hart’s observation about high potential leaders, “I can usually tell if they have the humility to make it.”

Humility yields success; arrogance blocks it. One source of arrogance is too much knowledge.  However, there’s something that matters more than knowing. It’s practicing what you know. Putting knowledge into practice tests, reveals, and establishes true knowledge. Practicing knowledge helps produce humility.

“Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.” Goethe
