From John Blakey‘s new book, The Trusted Executive, published just a couple weeks ago, here are these four tips from Jim Collins for how to be a humble leader:

  • Demonstrate a compelling modesty, shunning public adulation and never be boastful.
  • Act with quiet, calm determination and motivate others through inspired standards, not inspiring charisma.
  • Channel ambition into the company, not the self, and set up successors for even more greatness in the next generation.
  • Look in the mirror, not out of the window, when apportioning responsibility for poor performance.
