Mike Pence Offers Leadership Advice To Students: Be Humble And Self-Controlled Like Trump

Speaking to the National Student Leadership Conference on Wednesday, Vice President Mike Pence offered a group of students advice on the leadership qualities that make Donald Trump a successful President.

Pence said in order for a leader to be like President Trump, they must listen, be humble, have a character people respect, work to serve others and learn from other leaders, reports The Hill.

“I truly believe that to reflect humility is to approach leadership every day as a learner and as a listener,” Pence said.

Pence pointed to an early meeting during Trump’s transition into office, when he says the president-elect “listened intently” and probed “virtually all of the high-tech entrepreneurs and executives in America.”

“I urge you to be servant leaders, driven by a calling to support and to serve others — not by selfish ambition — as the animating force of your career,” he continued.

Pence also advised that they should “respect those who have been placed above you.”

“Honor them. Learn from them. Follow their example. Give them the honor that they are due,” he added.

Pence urged the aspiring leaders to “practice discipline and to practice self-control” in order “to become the kind of woman and man that people will respect and people will follow.”

“Thanks to the leadership of President Trump, we are in the midst of a great national renewal. We are seeing the return of security and prosperity for our nation and our people,” Pence told the students.

Late last month, Trump exercised his self-control with a tweet attacking “Morning Joe” hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski.

Trump lashed out at the hosts on Twitter for speaking “badly of me.”

The tweets drew immediate criticism from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle.

“It’s a sad day for America when the president spends his time bullying, lying and spewing petty personal attacks instead of doing his job,” MSNBC spokesperson Lorie Acio said in statement.
