I just wrapped up a series of blogs on leadership but wanted to share a bonus thought with you from a great leader in Amelia, OH. Mike Edmisten is the preaching minister of Amelia Church of Christ and he had some great thoughts on “humble leaders.”
Read the excerpt below and then check out the entire blog here.
I watched the season finale of Hell’s Kitchen this week. This show has to set a record for the most bleeps of any show on network TV. Seriously, the guy who inserts the bleeps over all the profanity had to make a bundle for all the overtime hours he worked.
Anyway, this show is a competition between a bunch of different chefs. The winner of this year’s competition would become the head chef at BLT Steak in New York City.
The guy who won the competition in the season finale had this to say about himself. “I’m a big *bleeping* deal!”
My immediate thought was, “Wow. Who would want to serve on this guy’s team?”
This dude may be a great chef, but he’s got a hard leadership lesson to learn. Great leaders are humble leaders.
