Whether C-level or middle management hiring, leadership is the most sought after trait.

While specific traits add to leadership’s definition, this is the #1 give-away of a true leader: The genuine intent to prioritize other people’s success.

Experienced recruiters have knack for spotting this trait. Once this is identified, other attributes of leadership including mentoring, conflict management, team-sync, etc. are accompanied by default. Leadership is not only about vision, planning, implementation, and execution. Without the right team spirit and chemistry in place, no objective is attainable.

This is why experienced recruiters, when hiring for top management or leadership roles, look for people-centric achievements during interviews. This attitude, of prioritizing others’ success, is more an ingrained than acquired characteristic.
