Leader Humility: Sign of Weakness or Winning Strategy?

Date:
Tuesday, January 24, 2017 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm PST
Presenter:
Michael Daniels, Assistant Professor of Organizational Behaviour and Human Resources, UBC Sauder.

We will discuss the emerging research on leader humility from a business perspective. Drawing from empirical research, our presenter will make the case that humility facilitates more effective learning, communication, and collaboration, ultimately improving relationships and performance in the workplace. 

Key takeaways will be: 

  •  What it actually means to be a humble leader 
  •  Whether humility means the same thing across cultures 
  •  How leader humility relates to important work-related outcomes and the circumstances under which these effects are stronger or weaker 
  •  How humility can be developed or trained
