EP23- Virtue Challenge - Humility w/ Joel Stepanek

Stephen J. CarusoOliver Pappas and myself recently launched, hosted and completed a 13 Day Virtue Challenge hosted on Instagram Live.  Daily conversations exploring Ben Franklin’s 13 human virtues as a framework to elevate our clarity, up our performance and to inspire us to strive for excellence in life and in Faith.  We are resharing all episodes on the Alto podcast!

In this conversation, Leo hosts Joel Stepanek to explore and unpack the virtue of Humility, "Imitate Jesus and Socrates."


Joel has been actively and passionately involved in ministry for over 15 years. He is the Vice President of Parish Services for Life Teen International. Joel is a sought after speaker and the author of several books, including “Chasing Humility: 8 Ways to Shape a Christian Heart.” Joel holds a Master’s degree in religious education from Fordham University and serves on the adjunct faculty for Franciscan University of Steubenville. Joel is an avid Crossfitter, enjoys cooking and gardening, and loves spending time with his wife and two children, Elijah Daniel and Sophia Grace.

Key talking points:
  • Humility is knowing who you are before God and letting that be enough.
  • Humility sets us free to grow and key to growing in the other virtues.
  • Humility is the cornerstone of exceptional leadership.
  • Praying the Litany of Humility daily will change your life.
