Humble CEOs

TECHINASIS writer Terence Lee discusses the benefits that humble CEOs bring to a company, especially to a startup.

“Companies with humble CEOs perform better, says research. Arrogance is often seen as a necessary trait in startup CEOs. But research might prove otherwise. In Silicon Valley, arrogance and ruthlessness are often seen as traits of successful CEOs. They’re trade-offs packaged with the positive qualities necessary for their startup’s success, like two sides of the same coin. Apple’s Steve Jobs is a prime example.”
