Have you noticed the concept of humility coming up in the literature lately? In The Ideal Team Player, Patrick Lencioni describes how being humble, hungry and smart (people smarts) are the three virtues of the ideal team player. He describes humility as "… the single greatest and most indispensable attribute of being a team player." Sounds intriguing, don't you think?

Edward Hess, author of Humility is the New Smart: Rethinking Human Excellence in the Smart Machine Age, discusses his take on the importance of humility in this podcast. He talks about how now, more than ever, people need to hone their skills in areas of emotional intelligence and working collaboratively with others. Give it a listen: Why Smart Machines Will Boost Emotional Intelligence

The writings of both these authors resonate with us and are consistent with our own experiences over the years of working with leaders and leadership teams.
