Humility

The ability to accurately perceive and evaluate yourself – including your strengths and weaknesses.

Why does humility matter?

Humility is about seeing the concept of yourself within the ‘bigger picture’ of the world. You do not regard yourself as more special that anyone else and do not seek the spotlight. Humility is about modesty and letting your accomplishments speak for themselves.

  • celebrate the achievements of their students and peers and let others shine;
  • ask questions about others;
