Author, Jim Collins, conducted research on leaders who were able to take their respective companies from being “good” to being “great.” As a result, he was able to identify some of the characteristics these leaders had in common. I would like to share two of them with you. First, these leaders possessed extreme personal humility. Even though they were running the company, they were not arrogant, condescending or otherwise taken with themselves. Second, they gave away all the credit to others when things went well and they absorbed all the blame when things went poorly. So, keep this in mind the next time you’re tempted to get on your “high horse” or point fingers at someone–it’s not what great leaders do.
