Leadership lessons gleaned from the U.S. Marine Corps by Donovan Campbell at The Globe and Mail on 12 June 2013.
An excerpt from the author’s book that suggests that humility is an important trait of a leader. Others include excellence, kindness, discipline, courage and wisdom. I liked the section in the middle of the article where it describes the dean of Harvard Business School’s research on the various types of leaders and the qualities that they share. There was only one trait in common – reflectiveness (of which humility is assessed as being a key piece). I also came across another article, about the same book, written by another Haligonian named Kaye Parker. She provides her own perspectives in the Chronicle Herald’s article.
