Use Humility to Improve Performance - John Baldoni - HarvardBusiness.org: "I've written before about the importance of humility as a leadership trait. But, as was recently pointed out to me, humility is an important trait in employees, too.
When people act humbly, they are acknowledging their limitations and accepting that they cannot go it alone. This mindset is valuable to a team because it serves as an invitation for others to help. Humility, however, is not an excuse for slacking. It also means having the willingness to help others do their jobs when the need arises. It is a means for allowing different personalities to coordinate with each other."
