Humility – The Mark Of A True Leader

People will recognize a true leader by how they serve not by what they say. If you have to say you are a servant leader then you are probably not.

A true servant leader has humility and focuses on the cause not their ego. There is no thought for power or control, it is just what needs to be done to see the cause advanced. There is almost a reluctance to take on a positional leadership role, but they will if that is the best thing to be done for the cause then they will lead.

There is strength in humility.

The reward of a servant leader is to see the job done. The legacy they leave for others is a good example to follow.

Humility – is the mark of a true leader
