A recent article, 3 Traits That Separate the Best Leaders from Average Ones by Karla Cook says that there is no single perfect profile of a successful leader.  However, through in-depth analysis of interviews, resumes, and multiple personality assessment questionnaires by researchers, they were able to construct psychometric profiles of CEOs from around the world.

Here are the following qualities associated with high-performing leaders in diverse places and executive suites.

  1. The best CEOs move promptly and positively towards their personal and professional goals. They understand the significance of agility and bringing their organizations towards change. They don’t procrastinate and aren’t afraid to commit mistakes. They are not impulsive decision makers but they take calculated risks to stay competitive and propel their organizations into the future.
  2. The most successful leaders are able to discern between noise and importance. With vast amounts of information on a daily basis, they can substantiate what are the most important issues, challenges, threats, and opportunities facing an organization by investigating many different sources of information that enables them to make sound judgments.
  3. Great leaders are willing to gain new ideas from someone else. For instance, great leaders in plug-and-play offices are not intimidated to talk to advisors and employees to seek new ideas and perspectives. They are open minded and are willing to learn by collaborating and working with people who are willing to provide alternative views and ideas. They are fully aware that their position demands constant learning and updating to remain successful.
