Humility is often associated with weakness - not with strong leaders. In his new book David J. Bobb explains why that's a mistake.

It takes great strength to display humility:-)

It is very rare to meet a leader with real humility.  It is often seen as a weakness rather than a strength.

Is Humility the Greatest Virtue?

Is Humility the Greatest Virtue? | Coaching Leaders |

New psychological research shows a clear link between humility, as a personality characteristic, and helping, an action one does for the benefit of others.


Researchers discovered that humility is strongly associated with a host of positive values, including reliable friendship, good working habits and generosity. Evolutionary psychologists say there's good reason for that: "Humble people will be more helpful to the group because a trait that involves subsuming one’s own needs to those of others is only likely to be preserved in a species in which cooperation is necessary for survival." Humans, who generally require the help of others in thriving or raising children, are probably one such species.
