To Make It in a Post-Pandemic World, Leaders Need One Thing: Humility
Marilyn Gist, an expert on leader development, and author of “The Extraordinary Power of Leader Humility: Thriving Organizations—Great Results” joins Enterprise Radio.
This episode of Enterprise Radio is in association with the Author Channel.
Listen to host Eric Dye & guest Marilyn Gist discuss the following:
- What inspired you to write this book? What led you to believe it is important?
- Isn’t “leader humility” a weakness? It seems inconsistent with strong leadership and getting the work done.
- What is dignity? Why does this matter when leaders have so many important things to focus on?
- When starting to work with a team, how does humility set a leader up for success or failure?
- Over time, what exactly do leaders need to say or do to show regard for others’ dignity?
- Leaders can have a lot of different styles. Do you think leader humility has value beyond business? Is it relevant for government or nonprofits?
