Courage is Humbleness! Read our article in Harvard Business Manager SPECIAL 2020 on COURAGE

We happily present our latest article in Harvard Business Manager, published in HBM`s Special 2020 on COURAGE. Below please find the English translation and the link to the original article in German (copyright by HBM).

Let’s not fool ourselves: Those who demand humbleness in management today have the applause on their side – and reality against them. Especially in top management, there is a deep gap between propagating and practicing humbleness.  Overcoming this gap would require above all one thing: Courage! Why? Because humbleness is too easily and mistakenly confused with a lack of ambition and weak decision-making – a devastating judgement for every manager.

The diagnosis is clear: In our time, which is characterized by disruption and uncertainty, it is a fundamental mistake to counter the loss of old certainties with false self-assurance. Learn what kind of courage is needed to thrive successfully in the executive fastlane in times of disruption.

Enjoy the reading!

Yours, Anke Houben & Kai Dierke
