Humility and soulful leadership go hand in hand. At Technalink, we encourage our leaders to embrace their humility, and to use it in their own compassionate leadership every day. Humility means to keep your own ego and self-importance in check, and it creates a more equal workplace environment that leaves every employee feeling appreciated, listened to, and important for their own value they bring to the business.
Humility helps today’s compassionate leader to practice self-awareness, a trait that is necessary if one wishes to grow in their own leadership skills. Self-awareness helps a leader to recognize their errors, their achievements, and how they can better themselves for next time, giving them a fast-track to personal growth they will receive nowhere else. Self-awareness also aids greatly in conflict resolution, and helps leaders to better recognize where improvements can be made so a better workplace can be built.
Humility also helps with encouragement, as leaders will be able to better look past themselves and toward those around them who bring so much value to a business. Encouragement works as an excellent inspirational and motivational tactic to bring drive and passion to a team, gently guiding them to innovation and meeting new goals with enthusiasm. When a leader is humble, they can see just how much individual value each employee or team member brings to the table, and they recognize this value in a way that is simply invaluable.
A compassionate leader who practices humility also helps themselves, not just those they work with. The humble leader is open to collaborating with other talents on various projects, and while this undoubtedly benefits the project, it also helps the leader to learn new skills or discover skills they never knew they had. This collaboration and meeting of equal minds really brings out the best in not only the team, but the leader, helping them to continue on their path to better compassionate leadership going forward.
Meditation can be a great start on the path to humility, and we at Technalink encourage looking within through meditation to find your inner humble self. Whether through meditation or other means, humility and soulful leadership are two things that intertwine so closely you cannot have one without the other. By taking the humble approach, you’ll begin to see the benefits around the workplace immediately.
