The Three Traits of a Successful Enterprise Leader

SHL’s Enterprise Leader Development science is based on a global study of over 1,650 managers, leaders, and heads of HR. We determined that successful leaders of our hybrid workplace have three critical characteristics: a combination of network, transactional, and transformational leadership skills.

Leaders that can execute the company’s strategy. They can analyze, adapt, support, co-operate, organize, and deliver.

Leaders that set direction and inspire change. They are great at creating and conceptualizing, interacting and presenting, and at leading and making decisions.

Leaders that can build aligned, purpose-driven, interconnected, and energized teams. These leaders work together to create highly engaged populations that are focused on their immediate team’s, and the wider enterprise’s performance.
