Vincent on Leadership > Training > Vincentian Leadership Model > Self
With the advice and support of several close companions who were, in their own way, deeply spiritual and compassionate leaders, Vincent de Paul worked at transforming himself as a person to better serve others. In doing so, he practiced and preached a commitment to the values of simplicity, meekness, humility, and zeal.
Vincent advised his companions to “treat each person with courtesy and respect.” He was renowned for his ability to befriend both the very rich and the very poor.
Vincent encouraged collaboration and the practice of seeking out the opinion of others. He wrote: “It is not a fault to seek the advice of others. On the contrary, it is helpful, and sometimes necessary to do so when the matter is important, or when we are not well informed about it.”
That's Vincentian leadership.
