  • “Have the answer? I don’t even understand the question.”  Anonymous

    We pick up where we left off in September’s SIG on the topic of curiosity and not knowing. It would seem that being humble is important to knowing what you don’t know. Not knowing puts you in learning mode and sparks curiosity as to what others think.

    Almost 20 years ago, Jim Collins, in his best-selling book, Good to Great, discovered humility to be the X factor of great leadership. While not a new idea, being humble is the latest buzzword in leadership development. Humility is the ‘new smart’ and required leadership trait in these unpredictable, chaotic times. 

    What’s going on here? In business, we learned early on that confidence and having answers were the key to being credible and taken seriously. Now, being humble and fessing up that you don’t have the answer makes you more genuine, approachable, and compelling. 

    In this SIG, we will explore:

  • o   What humility looks like – its behaviors and attributes.
  • o   Why humility is important, especially now?
  • o   The distinctions between confidence, arrogance, and humility.
  • o   Can humility be learned?

 We look forward to a good discussion and hearing your views on this topic.

Be well,

Joe Doty & Bob Stapleton

P.S. Registration is limited to 25 people. We have been experiencing ~ 40% no-shows which is unfortunate. Out of consideration for members who want to and can attend, we ask that you:

- Only register if you know you can attend.

- If a conflict arises and you cannot attend, please cancel your registration. (This is why we send reminders)

Thanks for your help.
