Traditional leadership based on immobile hierarchies is increasingly outdated and ineffective. Without the ability to communicate with their peers, leaders become alienated from their followers, and productivity and quality are sacrificed. The authors reimagine a leadership that includes relationship building, complex group work, and diverse workforces. Gaining a deeper understanding of the constantly evolving complexities of interpersonal, group and intergroup relationships requires shifting focus towards the process of group dynamics and collaboration. The humble leadership paradigm stresses the importance of collaboration and humility, where invention and new ways of doing things are created, rather than in the tunnel vision of new ideas of products, markets, or production methods. The future of leadership depends on working relationships that are trusting and open. Humble leaders don't shy away from human connection. but rather see it as an opportunity for growth and success.
