What Humble Leaders Do

April 1, 2010 - Mac Lake - Leadership

Humble leaders…

  • Listen
  • Value others opinions
  • Recognize others contribution
  • Admit they were wrong
  • Say “I’m sorry”
  • Accept feedback and constructive criticism
  • Give others credit
  • Use “we” instead of “I”

What would you add to this list?

  1. Truly try to see of there is a kernel of truth in someone’s criticism.

  2. Great List Mac. I would have to add:

    Great leaders are ALWAYS in the process of replacing themselves!

  3. I wish I had some handy phrases, memorized and rehearsed, for dealing with criticism and feedback. I know there is always going to be someone who is discontent, and either wants you to KNOW he is discontent, or maybe even wants to convince you to change something.

    Eg, my senior pastor Michael Fletcher responds to criticism by admitting freely, “You’re right–I really do have a lot to learn about being a pastor.”

    Does anyone have any helpful “tricks” like this?
