Assertive Humility

October 27, 2014


We  probably think of humility as being passive or submissive, but being  a humble leader may mean an entirely different thing.


Rather than being meek or mild, the good leader must sometimes be humble by placing the needs of others above their own needs and wants.  This can sometimes take an assertive form, such as when we need to provide feedback to someone about their poor performance.


We may fear a possible confrontation, but humility requires that we put our discomfort aside so that we can effectively tell the other person what they are doing wrong. 


Be a better boss and be humble, especially in this very different, assertive way!
