Do those with the most humility have the most influence? Or is vocalising knowledge and expertise an essential part of gaining the attention required to make a difference?
Often it seems that those who have learned the most have the least need to speak, whilst others who are working things out need to express their ideas outwardly.
Of course, we need to remember some people like to process internally and others externally as a matter of preference, so we need to take that into account.
That allowed for, sometimes it’s the quieter ones—the ones with humility—that really have the knowledge, and in fact the greater influence. Perhaps they know enough to know how much they don’t know, and so we trust them more.
What’s your experience?
