Confidence or Humility?

Is it possible to be confident and humble at the same time?

I think that it is not only possible, it's necessary. Centered leaders find that balance between confidence in their ability (and the capacity of their teams) and humility as an imperfect, learning individual and organization. It's not an either/or choice.

So much of centered leadership is coming to peace with the dynamic reality that in life we have endless possibilities and they don't imply either/or choices most of the time. We can bend. We can blend. We can mend and grow.

There is a tough yet necessary balance point between confidence and humility.

What will you do to help you find it?
