I have always had a hard time receiving words of praise. Specifically if it was from an employee or direct report. I think the reason is that I wake up every day with a purpose. To help this on my team become better than they were before they knew me. When you know what God designed you for and you wake every day a get to go do it, for me it is a humbling experience and a blessing to go be able to do that daily. Plus, it's the right thing to do and it models the way for others.
