Successful leaders and employers are not the most talented or confident, but they are the most modest and kind who work very hard. Research shows we value modesty in our co-workers and leaders, and that humble leaders are more successful and able to sustain this success, and be less likely to be corrupt. Successful people at work respond quickly, get the job done, do exactly what is asked of them, don’t tell lies, and are not arrogant or selfish. The most important attributes of a successful worker or leader are trustworthiness, kindness and empathy.
