Humility & Level 5 Leaders…

Humility is a great virtue, rarely understood. Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Joe Montana, Eleanor Roosevelt come to mind. All took a bold stand. All embodied the virtue of humility. Leaders in their “industry/field/work.”

In Jim Collins’ book “Good to Great” he writes: “Level 5 leaders are a study in duality: modest and willful, humble and fearless…” Collins uses an example of Colman Mockler, CEO of Gillette from 1975 to 1991. “A quiet and reserved man, always courteous, Mockler had the reputation of a gracious, almost patrician gentleman….He had a dedication to making anything he touched the best it could possibly be…” (read this book for more great examples!)

Collins continues “The good-to-great leaders never wanted to become larger-than-life heroes….They were seemingly ordinary people quietly producing extraordinary results.”

Can you learn to become a Level 5 leader? Do you want to produce extraordinary results? Contact me for coaching on just that, as I have decades of experience.  (And by the way, the “Summer Special” has been extended to Sept. 30 so it’s not too late to start, and it’s a great deal!)

Thank you, and please share this with others. Joan
