Weakness – not!

For many the word humility means weakness and cowardice. In many cases people are rewarded for being bold and exhibiting an in-charge attitude. This larger than life attitude while accepted in our culture as a necessary ingredient for leadership in actuality is not what leadership is about.

Humility is not a form of weakness but rather a form of strength. A humble leader gives power away to their followers. The strength is then passed on to the follower.

Isn’t humility the ability to accept ourselves for who we are? That is one definition. Humility is a posture we take that allows us to give away power rather than attempting to gain power from others.
