Sometimes as leaders we think that we have to have all of the right answers, that we have to be without blemish, but the reality is that the mark of a good leader is not one who is above correction, but one who embraces it. There are twi different types of discipline: discipline of structure and discipline of correction. Discipline of structure is when you order your life to know what you say yes to and what to say no to. Discipline of correction says that when I make a mistakes, I’m going to own it.
You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. If we want to become leaders, we must surround ourselves with people that make us better. Not only to do you have to surround yourself with people that make you better, but you have to make other people better! You have to ask, “how can I make you better?” Don’t exploit, don’t leach on other people.
People like to put humility up as a token trait. They’re quick to praise it, but slow to practice it. Humility is hard because it’s not about me, but it’s about you. Humility requires up to look beyond ourselves, but it doesn’t require us to put ourselves down.
