Abstract:

The major findings of this research review identified six categories consisting of 12 prominent characteristics which have directly reflected national perceptions of the leadership characteristics possessed by successful leaders in all organizational environments. The six categories were found to be physical, social background, intelligence and ability, personality, task-related variables, and social factors. The 12 appendaged leadership characteristics supported by the evaluation of the data indicated that successful leaders are above average in energy and activity, appearance and grooming, education scholarship, social status, intelligence, fluency of speech, self-confidence, personal integrity, achievement, responsibility, administrative ability, and interpersonal relations skills.
