Leadership, part 1

I’ve been discussing aspects of leadership for a short jaunt but I’ve been reminded I need to think much more deeply about this.

This will be the first in a mini series on what intangible attributes we, as leaders, must have to prevail. I’ll cover the attributes laid out at a recent conference with one specific question in mind: how does this affect my leadership?

Bill Hybels — a pastor in the Chicago area — in a room of clergy, businessmen, and government leaders stated this one line: “Armed with enough humility we can learn from anybody.” I’ve not forgotten that. Though it’s hinge is humility, I’ve begun asking myself with the question of whether or not I can swallow my pride to truly hear what others are saying.

Conversely, it’s really easy to say, “yeah, yeah, yeah. I know” whether or not I “know.”
