Margaret Heffernan, writing for Money Watch on May 2nd produced an article entitled “Great Leaders Aren’t Smug.” Read the whole article at http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-505125_162-57581779/great-leaders-arent-smug/.
Her basic premise is that truly strong leaders maintain a certain level of humility, modesty, and maybe a little anxiety.

This type of leadership is in contrast to leaders who believe they know everything and are overconfident.
Jesus said “Whoever then humbles himself as this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”
