Humility is but one of several signs of self-awareness — a key ingredient for sound leadership — another includes a growth mindset. This aspect includes an awareness and recognition that there are always opportunities for growth and a willingness to actively seek ways to improve. This is where ACPM comes into play. A professional membership association offers many services to its members and a key asset is volunteerism — an opportunity to offer your skills and expertise to the organization and use the association to grow, learn and improve what are often called “soft skills” or “essential skills” in leadership.
