Leadership Traits

Be outgoing

This can includeexcitability, sociability, talkativeness, assertiveness and high amounts of emotional expressiveness. This often demonstrated by a dominant or assertive style, with high energy or activity levels, speech fluency, sociability and social participation.

Gets on with most people

This personality dimension includes attributes such as trust, altruism, kindness, affection and other pro-social behaviours. People with this trait tend to have a friendly, approachable nature and a willingness to give and receive support.


Someone who has high levels of thoughtfulness, with good impulse control and goal-directed behaviours. Those high in conscientiousness tend to be organised and mindful of details and to have a keen sense of responsibility, personal integrity, and overall ethical conduct.

Neurotic (did you really say that?)

OK, I mean emotional stability, which is an ability to adjust and balance emotions appropriately, in an independent and self-confident manner. By contrast, individuals high in this trait tend to experience emotional instability, anxiety, moodiness, irritability and sadness.

Open and transparent

Imagination, curiosity and insight, and those high in this trait also tend to have a broad range of interests.
