Only Humble, Thoughtful Leaders of People Need Apply

What makes a company great?

Innovation, patents, defensible IP. High barriers to entry. Strategic brilliance married with decisive action. Being a first-mover. Delighted customers. Brand equity. Sales + marketing prowess. This list could go on and on.

This week I read a 1474-word job description. Daunting was the list of responsibilities and required qualifications. Then I read this under “ABOUT YOU:”

“You are a humble, thoughtful leader of people.”

Eight words. Wow. Now that’s daunting.

What makes a company great.
