10 Ways To Spot A Truly Exceptional Employee

10 Ways To Spot A Truly Exceptional Employee | Management | Scoop.it

A recent international study surveyed more than 500 business leaders and asked them what sets great employees apart. The researchers wanted to know why some people are more successful than others at work, and the answers were surprising; leaders chose “personality” as the leading reason.

 

Notably, 78% of leaders said personality sets great employees apart, more than cultural fit (53%) and even an employee’s skills (39%).

What does it take to be a great leader?

 

Once upon a time, birth order and socioeconomic status were considered powerful determinants in who would successfully climb the ladder.

 

Lately, though, the focus has shifted to personal qualities.

Guiding vision, passion, and integrity are well known leadership traits. But there are lesser known leadership traits, as well--in fact, some historically have been perceived as weaknesses.

 

These hidden traits can be developed and nurtured to help further your career and your role as a leader, at work, in your community, or in life in general.

 

See if you just might have some or all of these personal qualities that lend well to leadership:

My favorite on this list is modesty, which I think is a seriously undervalued skill/talent in the workforce.  A good leader is one that makes those they work with look good (without taking all the credit for themselves).

Hidden traits you can develop and nurture to advance your career and your role as leader.

Some of the best leaders I've met are those that are at the community level....no formal education or training and called informal leaders.   But they are knowledgeable about community issues, are passionate, have loads of integrity and are very humble!  Good share Dyana! I couldn't agree with you more.
