Quickly think of five common traits of high-impact leaders… good time management, assertiveness, drive, energy, charisma, etc. Humility rarely lands in the list when it comes to our modern, top-down management systems. But Jesus (the greatest leader ever) and Moses (perhaps the second) had this one thought in mind – great leaders don’t have power over people, but power under people by way of humility.
It’s really not about any of us. But especially right now, it’s not about the young leader. While you’re young and inexperienced, it’s not about you accomplishing all of your dreams. Sure, they are there. That’s one of the things that makes you a leader. If you’re not in the first chair of an organization, though, it’s not about you accomplishing all of those things… yet.
