Humble, Hungry & Smart Defined:


The single greatest and most indispensible attribute of being a team player (a person who is not humble will not be able to be vulnerable and build trust, making them unable to engage in honest conflict and hold others accountable)

  • Lack excessive ego or concerns about status
  • Quick to praise and affirm others contributions
  • Slow to seek attention for their own
  • They share credit
  • Emphasize team over self
  • Success is collective, not individual
  • Confident in themselves, but doesn’t see themselves as greater than others 


Almost never have to be pushed by a manager to work harder because they are self-motivated and diligent (a colleague who lacks hunger will not be willing to engage in uncomfortable conflict, hold peers accountable for their behaviors, or do whatever it takes to achieve results, choosing instead an easier path)

  • Always looking for more (to do, to learn, responsibility)
  • Never have to be pushed by a manager to work harder
  • Self-motivated
  • Diligent
  • Always thinking about their next step and opportunity
  • Manageable and sustainable commitment to doing a job well done
  • Going above and beyond when it is truly required


Simply refers to a persons common sense about people, not a persons intellectual capacity (a person who is not smart about people will most likely create unnecessary problems in the entire team building process, especially when it comes to tactfully engaging in productive conflict and holding people accountable for behaviors)

  • Aware
  • Ability to interpersonally appropriate
  • Knowledge of what is happening in a group situation and how to deal with it or them others in the most effective way
  • Ask good questions
  • Listen to what others say
  • Stay engaged in conversations intently

Good judgment and intuition around the subtleties of group dynamics and the impact of their words and actions
