4 Characteristics of Leaders Who Get Hired and Promoted

“Imagine if you had the opportunity to sit down with a senior executive and get the real, straight up truth about what it takes to stand out as a leader in today’s highly competitive workforce.

“That’s exactly what I got when I interviewed Oracle executive John Hall about the most common characteristics of people in his organization who contribute the most value. Hall was more than happy to divulge the four characteristics shared by those he is most likely to hire into – or promote within – the organization he has led to become the world’s most profitable software training business.”
