Leadership and Humilty

Nokia CEO Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo says in the HBR of last January that when he started as CFO in 1990, when Nokia was in financial distress, he had to be humble in front of bankers when he attempted to raise money. Kallasvuo now believes that humility is a vital quality in a leader. 'As of January 2007, Nokia has 100.000 people, and there's really very little I can do alone. But there is much I can do with the team'. It would appear to me that this is typical for a Democratic Leadership style.

Driven Humilty

This is what Jim Collins calls "driven humility" - one of the key differentiating factors (and the only leadership factor) that distinguished between "good" and "great" organisations.
