Humble Bosses Are More Effective

Some employers like to rule with an iron fist. They like to separate themselves from their staff, and not be a friend, but are just the boss. This may not be working though because according to a new study suggests humble bosses are actually more effective.

Researchers at the University at Buffalo, State University of New York discovered that bosses admit to making mistakes, and using those mistakes to teaching their employees.

“Leaders who can overcome their fears and broadcast their feelings as they work through the messy internal growth process will be viewed more favorably by their followers,” said study author Bradley Owens. “They also will legitimize their followers’ own growth journeys and will have higher-performing organizations.”

So if you want to be a great leader, don’t have an iron fist, be humble.
