Summary

The media is saturated with images of leaders as powerful, headstrong individuals, who are certain of their position and willing to do whatever it takes to achieve their organizational goals or personal ambitions. In reality, far too often, a leader'"s ego gets in the way of sound decision making, adversely affecting the organization and the individuals involved. This insightful book, based on cutting edge research, advances a new model for understanding effective leadership. Nielsen, Marrone and Slay advocate the idea of leading with humility, a trait that is rarely discussed and frequently misunderstood. Humble leaders consider their own strengths, weaknesses and motives in making decisions, demonstrating concern for the common good, and exercising their influence for the benefit of all. Research shows that such leaders are also more effective. Leading with Humilityoffers students and leaders clarity in understanding the connection between leadership and humility, and teaches them how to enhance their own abilities to become better leaders.
