Myth vs. Reality: Four Behaviors That Define Successful Leaders - Knowledge@Wharton

The data was fascinating. We embarked on the research; we weren’t fishing for any particular hypothesis to prove or disprove it. We applied a multitude of analytical approaches. What we found in terms of what didn’t matter surprised us as much as what we found of what did matter. For example, [we found] that the stereotypical, larger-than-life, charismatic CEO who never makes mistakes and is probably the smartest person in the room and rides in and out on a white horse with a perfect, unblemished record only exists in urban legends. And I’ve since come to realize that the only perfect CEOs I know are the ones whom I don’t know. http://knowledge.wharton.upenn.edu/article/myth-vs-reality-four-behaviors-define-successful-leaders/
