A staggering amount of research links conscientiousness with success and great leaders.
Conscientiousness is linked to income and job satisfaction. While other traits like extroversion predicts outcomes in some situations, studies have found that conscientiousness has as much impact on a leader’s success as extraversion.
Conscientious people become great leaders because they do things better than others. They set goals, work toward them, and persist when things go wrong. They have a mental toughness.
They behave in a way to set themselves up for success.

Is “the human factor” neglected in Social Media?
There are humans on the other side of the computer.
Too much automation? Think about real engagement. Think on this:
We talk about:
- the news
- weekend activities
- how our children are doing
You get the picture.
Even if we don’t reach the personal level, we discuss work in a much more casual way so that productivity does not suffer. This makes the work discussion more enjoyable.
On Social Media, we want to connect. We want to develop relationships by discussing topics in a casual way. This is the first step to building real engagement. Friendliness and warmth are essential for developing relationships and creativity confidence.
Get started. Take that step. Pave your way towards success.
Find someone who likes what you’re doing. They’ll support you.
BOLD WORDS. WHAT DO THEY MEAN?
They mean leaving our “comfort zone”. The safety of zones can be dangerous to our personal progress, individual success, and fulfillment of potential. We have to be willing to encounter the unknown.
When we become willing to take on the unknown, we’ll find our conviction about why this task is important to us. Sometimes we may have to fight through the fear to take the leap from our comfort zone.
We have the power to personalize our behavior outside our comfort zone. This personalization makes any surrounding more comfortable. We’ll connect with authenticity. To reach this goal, we’ll need to customize our approach to each appropriate situation.
This lifts the weight of fear from our beings. We no longer need be afraid of what could go wrong to focus on what we’ll do right.
