Abstract and Keywords
In this chapter, we explore the meaning and relevance of humility within the context of organizations. After briefly reviewing the history of the construct of humility and synthesizing past definitions of humility, we discuss extant research exploring the impact of humility on individual performance, prosocial behavior, team processes, and leadership. We conclude by discussing the potential boundary conditions for the usefulness of humility in organizations and offering ideas for future research.
