"One of the most important things about leadership is that you have to have the kind of humility that will allow you to be coached."

-Jim Yong Kim


Today's leaders have to come with a crucial quality - humility.


The humility and willingness to accept that they don't know everything, reach out to experts in times of need, be open to receiving feedback, learn to unlearn and reskill, and be receptive to coaching. 


Leaders who are humble enough to allow themselves to be coached are more likely to accept their mistakes, harness their vulnerability, take responsibility for their actions, and seek ways to improve. They operate from a growth mindset and are focused on continuous learning -for themselves and their teams. 


Their actions inspire teams to trust and empower them to achieve theirs and excel in their roles. Spurring success and growth.


Embrace humility and coaching for growth.


Reflective Questions:


  1. How can I proactively identify and address blind spots in my leadership, ensuring that I am receptive to constructive feedback and committed to continuous improvement?

  2. How can I leverage the power of coaching to enhance my skills and empower my team members to reach their full potential?
