Confident Humility

Confident humility means you’re not afraid to admit when you don’t know the answer.

Confident humility means you’re willing to give your team the credit but accept the blame.

Confident humility helps you to recognize when to compromise.

Confident humility means you’re able to learn from anyone.

Confident humility gives you a keen sense for when you’re wrong.

Confident humility allows you to offer critique in a healthy way.

Confident humility allows you to receive critique in a healthy way.

Confident humility keeps you grounded. It’s confidence with a check. It’s humility because of your experience. One without the other is no good, but together they’re powerful.
