The literature on humility has grown considerably in recent decades, within the fields of psychology and ethics, as have its applications in organizational management, leadership and the functioning of teams. This paper is intended as a further contribution to this literature. Its starting point is the hypothesis that an excellent manager must be a virtuous person and points to what is involved in managing an organization as justification for this hypothesis. It also explains the distinctive qualities of humility and how this virtue fosters management quality.
