When Jim Collins spoke at the Chick-fil-A Leadercast two weeks ago I took four pages of notes. I really enjoy that his content is deeply rooted in research and facts. He shares content that is practical, realistic and action oriented.
Here's part I of some notes I took from his talk:
All good companies have leaders. But the great companies have a different kind of leader – In Jim's research of hundreds of companies they found that all good companies had good leaders. But the truly great companies who've stood the test of time and who've made the greatest impact had a different type of leader.
Their leader possessed a quality not apparent in the good companies. It was one distinct quality: humility.
Great leaders at great companies possessed a quality of humility that was not found among the good company leaders.
It seems odd that humility would to have made the difference, but it was. So remember no matter what you do or accomplish, be humble!
Question: Do you have a method or something you do to help keep yourself humble? If so, please share in the comments section.
