This is one of the traits of Level 5 leaders that Jim Collins mentions in his book "Good to Great"...basically for success they look "out the window" and place the merits on others and even luck, and on failures they "look in the mirror" and take the responsibility, even if it wasn't entirely theirs.

He says: "Level 5 leaders are a study in duality: modest and willful, humble and fearless...

"Level 5 leaders Looks in the mirror, not out the window, to apportion responsibility for poor results, never blaming other people, external factors, or bad luck.

...Looks out the window, not in the mirror, to apportion credit for the success of the company—to other people, external factors, and good luck"

This to me is one of the greatest traits a person can have...personally and professionally
