The How-tos of Humility in Leadership

By: Lindsay Bell | April 17, 2013 |

The How-tos of Humility in LeadershipI have a great leader.

Ok, Danny Brown, bring on the ‚Äėbrown nosing‚Äô jokes.

But say what you will, it simply is fact.

I can say this because I’m old.

Being old usually means you have (hopefully) achieved a few things.

Have a bit of life experience and some perspective.

And have worked under a number of different leaders in the course of your career.

I certainly have, and most of them weren’t worth writing home about.

Speak from Experience

In fact, the various leaders I have had the (dis) pleasure of working with in the past have included despots, control freaks, paranoics, and patronizers. Gini Dietrich is none of those things.

The reason Gini is none of those things – her personality aside – is because she humbly recognized something early on: If she was going to be a great leader, she had to lead herself first.

She’s spoken openly about using various career or leadership coaches, in order to better not only herself, but her entire team and, ultimately, her company and its future.

Humility Helps

The word humble isn‚Äôt often associated with leaders. It speaks of deference, of submission. One gives ‘a humble apology.’ Arrogant people are ‘humbled’ when taken down a notch.

But humility in leadership has been found to be one of the most important traits to have.

Humble bosses lead at a very human level:

  • They lead by example.
  • They admit mistakes.
  • They recognize – and nurture – their follower‚Äôs strengths.

Researchers from the University of Boston have found those three leadership qualities are powerful predictors of the potential for an organization‚Äôs growth.¬†These ‚Äėhumble leaders‚Äô encourage learning, believe in team work, and are generally seen as more likeable and relatable than egotistical bosses. Not surprisingly, humble leaders experience lower staff turnover.

Another interesting tidbit from this study? Experienced white male leaders end up reaping the most benefits from this so-called ‚Äėselfless leadership style,‚Äô perhaps because it‚Äôs so unexpected and unusual for experienced white male leaders to lead that way. Of course, ‚Äėunexpected and unusual‚Äô is a generalization, but hey, history speaks for itself.

The How-tos of Humility in Leadership

So how can leaders embrace their humble side? Let’s Grow Leaders has compiled nine fantastic ways for leaders to achieve humility:

  • Understand they don‚Äôt have all the answers‚Äď and search for more.
  • Attract those who will tell the truth‚Äď and be able to hear them.
  • Reflect on their own leadership‚Äď and seek out change as needed.
  • Read about other approaches‚Äď and adjust.
  • Seek mentors‚Äď from all levels.
  • Share more about themselves and create connections.
  • Seek to learn about the people they work with‚Äď and see them as people.
  • Try new behaviors and ask for feedback.
  • Take stands against the politically correct choice.

My experience here at Spin Sucks and at Arment Dietrich these last six months has shown me our leader practices all of the above. Say I’m brown nosing if you will, but the facts don’t lie.

So, I ask you – what type of leader are you, or do you work for? And do you feel there’s room for humility in great leaders, or could it be perceived as a sign of weakness?

Thanks to N2 Growth for the image.

Karin Hurt¬†Karin, I loved that article (clearly!) – I think it really shocks people to see how much a humble leader can succeed – as opposed to the overbearing bully types. I’ve worked with many of the latter, and nothing demoralizes a team more than working for an overlord! Cheers, Lindsay

How incredibly prescient considering the dust up around Guy Kawasaki’s rude tweet about not taking advice from anyone with 1500 Twitter followers. ¬†I always liked Guy, but in that one tweet he showed the exact opposite of what you are talking about here. I KNOW, that your leader would NEVER respond rudely like that – she just wouldn’t. ¬†She has a level of humanity that would prevent the meanness from coming out. I too am ‘old,’ and I’ve had the pleasure of working under 2 great leaders, and the displeasure of working under a myriad of failures. ¬†My last boss… Read more »

AmyMccTobin¬†Thanks so much Amy. I love this:¬†Respect is earned – it’s not an entitlement. – you are SO right!! I too have worked with some real tyrants. And experienced unbelievable behaviour from them. I think the work-world is slowly shifting as employees realize there are indeed other options – and hellooo, it’s not the 1950’s any more. Treat people with decency and respect and you will reap the same in spades!

belllindsay¬†AmyMccTobin who is Guy Kawasaki? I had a similar issue with someone who once blogged she refuses to follow more than 500 people. She now has 30k followers (Lisa Barone) So I unfollowed her in 2010. When her name surfaced randomly I brought this up as why should I read her blog or follow her. Not like I can’t find the same information elsewhere.

Dealing with this now. And have in the past. My current situation really isn’t straightforward. The person I was partnering with it is her business. So I let her lead but I never formally signed a contract nor ever aid a salary so in effect I never really worked for her. But she needs a lot of coaching in management, leadershi, and project management as well as accountability. It is funny most employees will run through a wall for a great leader, no money needed. But for a poor leader people rebel and refuse to even go an extra inch.… Read more »

Enjoyed this post LB, thanks for penning it. Humility is such an underrated virtue in a leader and I can personally think of at least a dozen “leaders” from major corporations who could use a little and others that possess it in droves.¬†
One of my favorite quotes on humility from C.S. Lews is: “Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it’s thinking of yourself less.”

belllindsay

John_Trader1¬†HA! Great quote John! T-shirt material. I wonder sometimes if people just don’t even realize when they’re acting douchey. They just blindly blow through life knocking people down left and right as they go. I like to imagine some of them would say “What? Oh my god. Really? I act like that? I’m so embarrassed!” – but that probably wouldn’t happen. ūüėČ

Humility isn’t weakness. I suppose it can be perceived as such because it typically goes against the mainstream. The people I most enjoy working and being friends with, though, are humble. They don’t lord their rights. They lead by example, and they put others first.

Hi Lindsay – I lead by example, admit my mistakes quickly and nurture & recognize the strength of those I have the privileged of serving.
There something empowering by simply esteeming others greater than yourself. You can’t humbly and humanly lead others from any other position.
Most leaders lead from the direct opposite position and these make me sick and most of those they lead sick as well. Duchebags!
Hope you’re having a wonderful day, miss – you’re lucky to have a leader like Gini! : )

Steve Byers¬†Ha! Thanks, also very honest comment Steve and so true. There are tons of leaders out there who mean well, but get caught up in the minute by minute stressors of running a business or a team. I think there’s a clear distinction between an overbearing tyrant, and a good boss who’s under a lot of stress and might overreact the odd time. I’m pretty sure most employees have empathy for the latter, who’s probably a pretty nice guy most of the time. ūüėČ
