Jim VandeHei: Mike Allen, Mister Rogers, and the Power of Humility

From a post on axios.com by Jim VandHei headlined “The power of radical humility”:

I’ll never forget asking Mike Allen, my co-founder and co-author,  how he grew kinder as his public prominence — and power — soared.

  • “I don’t understand how you could not get more humble. It’s obvious how much luck and help it took to get me here,” he said.

Why it matters: We often celebrate those who break things, invent things or build things with bravado. But I have learned more studying two men of uncommon modesty: Mikey and the late Fred Rogers, a.k.a. Mister Rogers.
