7 Rules of Humble Leadership

Like Batman, great leaders have great codes of conduct. Here are the 7 Rules of Humble Leadership, to enable you to enable your people and get amazing results in a team of smart and talented people.

Predicting the future, Bill Gates once said that "leaders will become those who empower others", which is what I like to call Humble Leadership.

In a knowledge economy, command and control leadership is no longer optimal, as it isn’t possible for one person to know everything to effectively lead and make good decisions. A good leader will seek the support and intellectual contribution of their team, without which they end up alienating their people and doom themselves to failure.

You can demonstrate the Humble Leadership style to your people by living and communicating the following 7 key rules:

1) Healthy challenge

I need healthy and respectful debate about ideas and challenge on the quality of what I deliver.

2) Hold me accountable

Ensure that you hold me accountable for actions that I have agreed to deliver. I can forget at times.

3) Partnership

Ensure that we are partners with our business and client stakeholders, so that we grow and succeed together.

4) Transparency

I need people to not ‘sandbag’ issues as I certainly promise not to ‘sandbag’ issues with each of you. Let’s call out the issues, who owns them, and tackle them together.

5) Understand that perfect is the enemy of great

I’m not perfect, and nor is what we do. We’re on a continual journey together to deliver an ever better service, so there will be times we get it wrong.

6) Learning culture

I’m here to listen and learn from each of you. I don’t know everything, and I can tell I have a lot to learn from all of you.

7) Humour is the best medicine

I'll make jokes. I’m funny...or at least let me think I am!

Do any of these resonate with you? As leaders, are you doing any of these in your current position?
