Lead with Humility:

12 Leadership Lessons from Pope Francis

by Jeffery A. Krames

When Fortune announced its list of the World’s Greatest Leaders, the top spot was awarded - not to a captain of industry - but to the new pontiff. Since his election, Pope Francis earned that accolade - and more.


The author examines the Pope's leadership skills and summarizes them into these basic practices;


  • Don’t stand over your employees—sit down with them
  • Avoid insularity
  • Don’t judge—assess
  • Take care of people, not lobbies
  • Go where you are needed
  • Temper ideology with pragmatism
  • Don’t change—reinvent!
  • The boldest course can be the most prudent
