The freedom to lead from a context of humble diversification might be intimidating to some. But those who know and recognize their personal value, acknowledging the power that brings them to the position of leader don’t have any difficulty sharing their position. In fact, they acknowledge the power of diversity, strength in leadership, and the fundamental formulation of teambuilding in their leadership style.


This extraordinary power of leadership, the genuine variety that proclaims diverse cultural foundations, begins with humility. I was frequently reminded that Jesus was a humble leader. He trained others to take his place in positions of leading, and community growth, often as was described in this book. This common default among leaders to serve first, and lead from a perspective of service reveals a standard of development genuinely relevant to all leaders.

This quote left me contemplating relevant questions.

“As a leader, you don’t have to know all the answers, but you do need to know all the questions. What if you just hold a key question for your team and then have confidence and trust in the team to solve it? You can let the discussion surface the issues that need to be handled, and all will then be invested in the outcome.” —JIM WEBER

One of the greatest leaders in my life often said, “I don’t have all the answers. I don’t even know all the questions, but I’ll bet together we can find what we need to know.” His wisdom has given me a lifetime of advantage. Extraordinary comprehension of the real knowledge that comes with confidence to take the leap of faith and find the answers where needed, but more importantly to look for more questions.

The words Gist shared in her book revealed a highlighting of how leaders are designated with their charge to lead, and often the succinct methods by which they are lifted through cultural diverse realities into leadership positions. These are profoundly shared. Including brand performance, and rigorous compromise the design of a strong leader often comes from interactive cultural growth.

Elements of these are found in humble beginnings. More are found in the fundamental focus of diverse organizations. People who seek leadership positions often don’t find them, and others who would prefer not to be leaders may be thrust into those positions. Confidence to grow where you’re planted is significant in either case.


Again, I’m reminded of leaders who share the credit for excellence and exceptionalism with those who step up and take the lead within their organizations. There are humble leaders we can look to even today, who recognize leaders in their teams and give credit where it is due. Those leaders are often recognized for their own genuine power and actions. I recommend this book. It will give you insight and a vision for developing leadership options within your own business.
