Humility in Leadership

Humility in Leadership

Humility is a skill every leader can choose to learn!

Research has demonstrated that there is an association between higher levels of humility and stronger communities.

At the heart of humility there is an understanding that every step in the right direction can make a difference. 

Three steps to consider in your pursuit of humility. 

#1: Acknowledge that unless you have experienced it first hand,

·        you cannot fully understand the pain of those who suffer racial disparity

·        you cannot fully understand the pain of persecution among those of specific religions that are under attack

·        you cannot fully understand the pain of women and children generation over generation who have been sold into slavery

#2: Your humility deepens when you begin to humbly approach listening and learning. I have heard it referred to as “humility in learning”.

“Humility is not thinking less of yourself, but thinking of yourself less."  C.S. Lewis

#3: The third step in your growth as a humble leader is to increase the intentionality of building the kinds of meaningful relationships that transform the way you connect with those you influence who have experienced challenges of enormous proportions.

About the Podcast

The Art of Leadership
Experienced leader, Niña Ellison, focuses on those seeking a fresh perspective into some of the hardest skills a leader will ever learn.
The Art of Leadership with Niña Ellison focuses on the soft skills of leadership, their value and the power of their influence. As a leader, if you are interested in moving from success to significance then balancing both hard and soft skills is essential! These seemingly opposing skills complement rather than compete with each other. Hard skills are demonstrated through technical expertise that results in clearly measured goals being reached. They are vital to the success of any initiative or program. On the other hand, soft skills emphasize the transformation of people more than the transaction of tasks. They highlight behavioral changes and making a difference in people’s lives. This podcast is for leaders who are seeking a fresh perspective into some of the hardest soft skills a leader will ever learn. You can connect with Nina at https://www.healthyleadership.online
