    • Business

Leaders who display humility can improve their team's confidence and make them feel safe in the workplace, says Melbourne Business School Associate Professor Burak Oc.

"Irrespective of whether or not you're a humble person, if you do at least three things in an organisation, people will perceive you as a humble leader," he says.

"What are those three things? It's acknowledging that you're only human and you can make mistakes too, recognising other people's strengths and achievements, and basically putting in effort to learn and grow as an individual."

Professor Oc was speaking on the latest episode of the Melbourne Business School Podcast, joining host Yasmin Rupesinghe to discuss his research into the benefits of displaying humility as a leader in the workplace.
