Annual Virtual Conference on Moral Leadership

Humility and Organizational Leadership

Proverbs 22:4Humility is the fear of the LORD; its wages are riches and honor and life.”

“People sometimes speak of humility and meekness as something that would rob us of what is noble and bold. OH, that all would realize that this is the nobility of the kingdom of heaven, that his the royal spirit that the King of heaven displayed.” Andrew Murray

Kathleen Patterson, Ph.D.

Humility is noted as the queen of virtues, the mother virtue to all other virtues, and the peaceful virtue. It has been said that the greatest virtue, humility, keeps us from the greatest vice, pride. This presentation seeks to share the essence of what humility is by sharing that it is not a permissive or weak characteristic, but rather strength of character. The presentation also shows humility as a virtue, how it is an imperative for leaders today, and how humility and leadership work together.
