Leadership and the Power of Humility

It’s been said that there are two types of leaders: those who have been humbled, and those who are about to be. Humility is often a result of humiliation. Leaders learn their most powerful and enduring lessons by facing hardship, enduring setbacks, and making blunders,

Bill Treasurer and Marshall Goldsmith, bestselling authors and two of the world’s most respected leadership thinkers, share how to benefit from your leadership mess-ups and failures so you can become a more grounded, authentic, and humble leader. The untold truth is that most leaders don’t go from good to great. They earn their stripes the hard way, and go from decidedly bad to pretty good.

So, set aside a lunch hour to strengthen your leadership. Join Bill and Marshall in uncovering how leaders grow and develop through their mistakes, and discover why humility is the key to great leadership. In the words of Mark Twain: “Good judgment is the result of experience, and experience is the result of bad judgment.”
