If Humble People Make the Best Leaders, Why Do We Fall for Charismatic Narcissists?

If Humble People Make the Best Leaders, Why Do We Fall for Charismatic Narcissists? | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it

"Human beings hunger for superheroes."


""The research is clear: when we choose humble, unassuming people as our leaders, the world around us becomes a better place. 


Humble leaders improve the performance of a company in the long run because they create more collaborative environments. They have a balanced view of themselves – both their virtues and shortcomings – and a strong appreciation of others’ strengths and contributions, while being open to new ideas and feedback. 


These “unsung heroes” help their believers to build their self-esteem, go beyond their expectations, and create a community that channels individual efforts into an organized group that works for the good of the collective."

By Margariate Mayo. It sounds hopeless. But in the end we get the leaders we deserve.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, September 26, 2:32 PM
Are narcissists really leading? Perhaps they are bullying, manipulating, coercing, etc. How we choose leaders, if that is what we want to call them, speaks volumes about what we value as people.

Dr. Harry Edwards on the Injustice of Brain Injuries & CTE as NFL Rosters Become Predominantly Black | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it
Amid increasing concern over chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, a degenerative brain disease linked to repeated blows to the head, a recent study of the brains of 111 deceased NFL players found all but one were found to have CTE. We speak with Dr. Harry Edwards, sociologist, author and sports activist, who says a consequence of CTE that is largely overlooked is the lack of alternative job opportunities for black players.
