in Best-Practices Leadership,Leaders & Managers

“Willful humility,” that’s the most important quality in a business leader, says Jim Collins, the best-selling author of Built to Last and Good to Great.

In researching his books on leadership, Collins found that the leading executives show “tremendous ambition for their company combined with the stoic will to do whatever it takes, no matter how brutal (within the bounds of the company’s core values), to make the company great. Yet at the same time, they display a remarkable humility about themselves, ascribing much of their own success to luck, discipline and preparation rather than personal genius.”

—Adapted from “Questions for Jim Collins,” Matthew Boyle, Fortune.
