Personality Traits Found in Successful Leaders

There has been much discussion around the personality types of leaders. There are so many types of leadership personalities: the “Jack Welch way”, the “Steve Jobs way”, the “Justin Trudeau way”…
 
So what is the best personality type of a leader?
 
Answer: Yours.
 
The reality is that all kinds of personality types are leaders and the key is to know your style and be true to how you are wired. While, yes, you can observe elements that are powerful and learn from them, when it comes to leadership, copying is not the greatest form of flattery.
