In October we will study attribute #4 – Humbleness Doesn’t Have to be Scary
High Performing Teams have a strong sense of self awareness, a well grounded confidence and allow team members to shine. Humbleness is not about putting yourself down, thinking of yourself less, or shrinking yourself down, it’s about thinking of others more! When one teaches, two learn and we all win.
