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
