Humble Leadership

The more traditional forms of leadership that are based on static hierarchies and professional distance between leaders and followers are growing increasingly outdated and ineffective. In today’s complex world, leadership must rely on high levels of trust and openness throughout the organization. Without it, organizations will continue to face the productivity and quality problems that result from reward systems that emphasize individual competition and “climbing the corporate ladder.”

Edgar and Peter Schein, authors of Humble Leadership: The Power of Relationships, Openness, and Trust, recognize this reality and call for a reimagined form of leadership. Listen in as they discuss the emerging trends of relationship building, complex group work, diverse workforces, and cultures in which everyone feels psychologically safe.

Discover the need for “here and now” humility that is based on a deeper understanding of the constantly evolving complexities of relationships that require shifting our focus toward group dynamics and collaboration. You will learn how to achieve the creativity, adaptiveness, and agility that organizations need to survive and grow; and how to ensure open, trusting communication that will make more collaborative problem solving and innovation possible.
