Leadership Kaleidoscope: The Triumph of Humility and Fierce Resolve
We are seeing that contemporary leaders who are exceptionally successful , are a a study in duality: modest and wilful, shy and fearless. To grasp this concept, consider Abraham Lincoln, who never let his ego get in the way of his ambition to create an enduring great nation. They demonstrate a compelling modesty, shunning public adulation; never boastful. They act with quiet, calm determination; relies principally on inspired standards, not inspiring charisma, to motivate and channel ambition into the company, not the self; sets up successors for even more greatness in the next generation. And yet they have tremendous will to create superb results, a clear catalyst in the transition from good to great. They demonstrate an unwavering resolve to do whatever must be done to produce the best long-term results, no matter how difficult and set the standard of building an enduring great company; will settle for nothing less.
