Humble Curiosity

I thought it was time for me to retire. I was sixty-one years old, and I thought our twenty-nine-year-old company was going strong. I’d come to work each day and sit in my office bored. Playing on emails and Facebook.

However, our next financial report revealed we were more than a hundred thousand dollars in the red and sinking.

What was wrong with me? Why didn’t I know all this?

Leaders often need a lesson in humility.

Make humble curiosity part of who you are. Like it says in Philippians 2:3, “Do nothing out of selfish ambitions or vain conceit. Rather, in humility, value others above yourselves.”

Ask the team. Listen. Be curious. Gather information. Many times, the solutions will present themselves.
