He consistently deflects praise away from himself and onto others, he lets his contributions speak for themselves, and he has built a career on doing all he can to help others grow and succeed.”

His past research on organizational effectiveness, downsizing, culture, and the development of leadership competencies has been published in more than 120 academic articles and 14 scholarly books. His current research focuses on the virtuousness of and in organizations and its relationship to organizational performance.
