When we talk about entrepreneurs or successful business leaders, some tend to believe that certain people are just born with those abilities or interests. I’m not one of them.
I once attended a workshop for a number of entrepreneurs. As part of the event, we all took the Personality Research Form (PRF) – sharing the results as a group. This exercise changed what I thought made a successful entrepreneur – and my perspective on myself changed as well.
Since then, I’ve come to identify a number of personality types who fill the roles of entrepreneur and CEO. Do you see yourself in any of these?
The reality is, each of us exhibit one or more of these different personality traits depending on the situation or the state of your business. However, if we recognize the Steady/Proactive CEO as our ultimate leadership goal, we can better balance our other tendencies – helping us become the most effective leader possible.
