11 Surprising Personal Traits That Will Help Your Career

Justin Gray / September 03, 2014 / 0 Comments

Your personality may be linked to your career path and leadership style more than you think. To find out more, we asked 11 entrepreneurs from Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC) what (often surprising) traits have helped them run their business. Here’s what they had to say:

1. Quick Decision-Making

My ability to make decisions quickly and iterate on a dime has helped tremendously. What many people have called impulsivity has allowed me to become incredibly relevant in a very short amount of time. No bad press lasts longer than a few days, so why dwell on the mistakes? – Justin GrayLeadMD

2. A Strong Work Ethic

It’s surprising because many observers think that entrepreneurs succeed because of a brilliant idea, or tremendous product or coding talent. But I’ve found that putting in time — responding to emails quickly, providing feedback as soon as possible — ensures that you have a hold on your team. Not only can you lead by example, but it also keeps projects moving quickly. – Bhavin ShahRefresh
