Humility, or holding power loosely for the sake of others, is sorely lacking in today's world. Without it, many people fail to develop their true leadership potential and miss out on genuine fulfillment in their lives and their relationships. Humilitas: A Lost Key to Life, Love, and Leadership shows how the virtue of humility can turn your strengths into true greatness in all areas of life.

Through the lessons of history, business, and the social sciences, author John Dickson shows that humility is not low self-esteem, groveling, or losing our distinct gifts. Instead, humility both recognizes our inherent worth and seeks to use whatever power we have at our disposal on behalf of others.

Some of the world's most inspiring and influential players have been people of immense humility. The more we learn about humility, the more we understand how essential it is to a satisfying career and personal life. By embracing this virtue, we will transform for good the unique contributions we each make to the world.

Humilitas
5 stars By Noah, Aug 10 2014
With a clear and easy-to-read style, historian and minister John Dickson explores an often overlooked virtue: humility. By tracing its roots, defining its meaning and revealing its effects, 'Humilitas' aims to prove that humility is truly 'the lost key to life, love and leadership'.

Humilitas was not exactly what I expected it to be.
3 stars By MagicLee, Jan 03 2013
When I purchased this book, I was expecting to read a book on leadership. However, I felt that this book did not adequately address leadership. If you are looking to buy a book on leadership: this is not for you. But, what I did enjoy about this book were the several chapters dedicated to exploring the historical context(s) of humility and also, the ideas presented on tolerance and humility.
