He defines level 5 leaders as persons who posses individual capability, team skills, managerial competence, leadership, and a 5th factor that can be identified as personal humility and professional will. They are self-effacing individuals who have great ambition, not for themselves, but for their companies. He is positive that there are many level 5 leaders, and they are in companies that lack big celebrities, but produce clear results or accomplishments.
