Leadership is a delicate blend of self-confidence and humility. You have to have the self-confidence to say, 'You don't want to make that decision without my input!' But self-confidence without humility becomes a problem. I may be the CEO. But part of that was having a few skills, and part of it was luck. Part of it was the man upstairs. So I'm no better than anyone else. Self-confidence and humility: Blend those two together, and you have someone who has a good chance of leading effectively.
Four principles that guide leaders to make choices that are aligned with their values are 1) Self-Reflection: The ability to reflect and identify what you stand for, what your values are, and what matters most. 2) Balance and Perspective: The ability to see situations from multiple perspectives, including differing viewpoints, to gain a holistic understanding. 3) True Self-Confidence: More than mastery of certain skills, true self-confidence enables you to accept yourself as you are, recognizing your strengths and your weaknesses, and focusing on continuous improvement. 3) Genuine Humility: The ability never to forget who you are, to appreciate the value of each person in the organization, and to treat everyone respectfully.
