We know that Metalworking Solutions has an impact on the lives of everyone that we have a relationship with, and we want to help all of those people and businesses THRIVE.

Today, we wanted to highlight the “H” in “THRIVE”, which stands for Humility.

On Monday, I was fortunate enough to be able to watch former President George W Bush speak in person and, though it was a private event and I don’t have video of the speech, he stressed the importance of humility as a key leadership trait worth focusing on, even though it may not come naturally for people in power.

He acknowledged the benefits of recognizing that, even though we can be confident and know our stuff, there are things that we don’t know and that we should always be working to learn those things, with the help of the team that we surround ourselves with, before we make a decision.

I don’t have a video to go along with this post. Instead, I’ll leave you with these words from the former president:

“I’m fallible.”

Those are big words from a man who was arguably once the most powerful man in the world, and a reminder that we always have room to be vulnerable, to learn, to grow, and to put others first.
