We must, of course, recognize these imperfections and be willing to first forgive ourselves and then the leaders around us for these transgressions. Make no mistake we require an “A” on these fundamentals but even scoring that high means you may still miss the mark 10% of the time.
Accepting those faults is where humility and love come into play. You need humility to honestly accept and readily recognize that you will fall down at times. You need love because you cannot have love without forgiveness, and you must give and accept both love and forgiveness if you are going to lead.
