What is humility?

I think humility is an essential ingredient for both coaching and leadership. Humility might be described as thinking of yourself less not thinking less of yourself. Who do we usually put in front of others if not oneself?

Authenticity, transparency and genuineness are ingredients of humility.

Of course pride is the opposite of humility. Pride creeps into our everyday existence.
