In April 2016, we set out to measure how well each of a series of 12 leadership dimensions fit the four major presidential candidates at that time — Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz and, of course, Donald Trump. The leadership characteristics were based on Gallup’s executive leadership research program, which has studied thousands of leaders and senior executives in hundreds of companies.
The results showed significantly different profiles for all four candidates.
Now that one of those candidates — Trump — has become president and has been in office for almost nine months, we thought it a good time to update his leadership profile. CONT.
