I’ve just come across this quote. It speaks a lot to me about humility:

“Surprisingly, the most effective leaders did not have the highest level of self-awareness. Indeed, the more they underrated themselves, the more highly they were perceived as leaders. We assume this is caused by a combination of humility, high personal standards, and a continual striving to be better.”

We Like Leaders Who Underrate Themselves by Jack Zenger and Joseph Folkman, Harvard Business Review, November 10, 2015
