Emmaus Road author of The Pope and the CEO Andreas Widmer has a meaningful commentary on Pope Benedict’s abdication of his papacy here. In the article, Widmer underlines an important lesson on leadership:
Pope Benedict XVI provides a rare but profound example of humility in action. True leaders put their cause before their power and self-interest. Far from a failure or weakness, this may be the most shining moment of Benedict’s papacy, and what will turn out to be a historically brilliant move.
