Humility in leadership isn't letting people run roughshod all over you.  Its not giving in on a principle because you don't want to ruffle feathers.

Humility in leadership is strength under control.  Its thinking of others first.  Its working hard to see that relationships are mended and reconciliation happens even when its hard.

One of the most important things to remember - the rules DO apply to leaders... even if think Kirk missed that point.

We want to model strength under control.
