BIG IDEA In A Few Words
Very smart people can be very wrong about something very important. In the arena of leadership, especially higher level organizational leadership, overconfidence is a bigger problem than incompetence. Incompetence is frustrating; overconfidence is scary. One of the most important lessons we can learn from the recent financial crisis is the danger of overconfidence and the importance of total dependence. The antidote for overconfidence is humility and here's why, humility is the root system of faith. Great humility produces great faith. Great faith releases great power.
