Gibo Teodoro: Humility is virtue of a true leader. Hubris is dangerous
After the Commission on Elections (Comelec) started to proclaim winners in the recent midterm elections, former Defense Secretary Gilbert “Gibo” Teodoro Jr. has reminded the country’s leaders to choose humility over hubris.
Teodoro, who has stayed out of media spotlight since he lost the presidential polls in 2010, stressed that humility was at the heart of good leadership.
“We should embrace and engage with those who are willing to listen and to learn. Hubris is not only arrogant but dangerous. Humility is indeed a virtue of a true leader,” he said in Facebook post.
