Developing Humility I started this post with: “Here’s the one you’ve been waiting for”, but as I started writing I realised that this is bigger than one post. So I have decided to split up how to improve in each virtue into a separate emails so that I can do each one justice. If you’re looking to improve in Humble, “here’s the one you’ve been waiting for”. If not, I still encourage you to read on because even Ideal Team Players have room for improvement. So, you understand what an Ideal Team Player is and you’ve identified where you sit in the diagram. Now the question is: “I’m
I recently posted about the Ideal Team Player, a model by Partick Lencioni that measures three virtues of what he says it takes to be an ideal team player; Humble, Hungry, Smart. No one is perfect.

This is the final article in a seven part series. Read the first, second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth articles. Every teams’ ultimate goal is results. For any team to excel, every single team member must be willing to put the team’s goals ahead of their own individual goals. If you’re reading this thinking “well, duh”, let me tell you, just because it is obvious, doesn’t mean it’s what happens.
