Humility and humus share a common root.

John Michel's curator insight, July 8, 2013 11:34 PM

Dropping our self-importance and replacing it through humility leads to inner silence. We are able to see the world with clear eyes. And we see ourselves more clearly as we are. We no longer compare to others and we see others as equal. Humble people don’t see the own success as most important. They help others to become successful, too.

To broaden our understanding of what Millennials want at work, INSEAD’s Emerging Markets Institute, Universum, and the HEAD Foundation conducted the first of what will become an annual survey of Millennials — and the largest study of its kind. We surveyed 16,637 people between 18 and 30 years old, in 43 countries across Asia, Africa, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, and North America.


The data was collected from May to August 2014, and the results are presented in “Millennials: Understanding a Misunderstood Generation.

An interesting article. 

 

(From the article): Obviously, the biggest insight comes from the answers to question #3. Clearly, the best bosses, male or female, are the bosses who recognize their people the most.  In fact, findings from a recent global study by the Cicero Group show that 89% of employees who are recognized reported feeling a greater sense of drive and determination. And 81% felt a greater connection to the company. With this kind of data, maybe it’s time to stop analyzing chromosomes and leadership, and instead focus on measuring activities of leadership.

But many other aspects also fall into this category. These are like the ability to:

 

Cultivate wisdomDevelop genuine humilityNurture a heart of gratitudeOr even summon courage when it really counts

And the reason is fairly simple: these are the highly personal aspects of real leadership that only come through a deliberate and life-long commitment to self-discovery.

Our mercantile minds have become so optimized to derive maximum margins that we tend to forget that it all starts with us, ahem, humans.

But why trust me on this. Just google Steve Jobs and/ or Richard Branson, or a myriad of other thinkers about what they have to say.

 

In the beginning there are neurons firing in each or our brains deriving a new idea or insight. Everything else comes later. So, value your humans. And, btw, they are not "resources" they are creative agents of change - if allowed to be.
