Edgar Schein and Peter Schein: Humble Leadership
Ed Schein is Professor Emeritus of MIT’s Sloan School of Management. He is the author of many books and publications, including the new book Humble Leadership*. Peter Schein is the cofounder and COO of the Organizational Culture and Leadership Institute and co-author of Humble Leadership*.
The problems today’s leaders face are becoming more and more complex, and leaders can no longer be expected to know all the answers.
All people are vulnerable in one sense because nobody knows everything.
The value systems of many companies do not incentivize managers to get the most out of their teams, instead of rewarding managers for playing up to management.
