A new research that is mentioned in Forbes (read here ) “Will New Research Finally Unleash The Power Of Humility” highlights NEW UNDERSTANDINGS about humility in connection with great leaders and leadership.
I am sure that you can immediately feel the positive power of humility when it comes to feeling good being a part of a group, team etc...when the team leader is humble and gives the team the credits for achieving the business goals (instead of taking the glory for himself/herself).
Humility is at it’s best when it is honest and authentic. It means that the leader is truly humble and gives the credit to others because he/she really and truly believe that others deserve the credits and not as a matter of using humility as a leadership strategy (that isn’t being authentic).
In reality, you depend on the performance of each and every member of your organization. Therefore, not being humble when it comes to taking the credits for success is unrealistic and therefore it is also the opposite of humbleness which is arrogance!
Be aware and watch your performance and the performance of your team to realize that the credits for success belong to everyone and not necessary to you.
