Here’s what I think. The foundation that authentic leadership is built upon is, you guessed it, humility, but here’s where I mess it up.
I tend to lightly check the box on humility. Then, give-in to my biology or instinct and launch myself into building my next success when I should be descending…
Descending? Yep, by excavating before building that next success. Why? To make as much room as possible to include others’ talents in reaching higher than I can by myself. How? Asking these questions point me in the right direction.
If we excavate our pride and vanity first, we make room for a deeper foundation of humility.
The deeper we excavate, the deeper our foundation, the higher we can build. What do you think?
