The research, led by Nelson Cohen Global Consulting and sponsored by CoachLogix, Cognician, Concensus, eLearning Mind, Executive Core, and Herrmann International is comprised of responses from 2800 business professionals from 122 countries who responded to the Traits of Most Admired Leaders survey with questions about the traits they think leaders need to demonstrate to be successful today and in the future. The traits list came from The Leadership Challenge workshop. The workshop supports The Leadership Challenge: How to Make Extraordinary Things Happen in Organizations Fifth Edition by James M. Kouzes and Barry Z. Posner. The focus on place of birth versus place of residence reveals key indicators that make an impact on leaders and followers alike, which is invaluable whether you are engaged in executive talent management, managing global teams, relocating to another country, or leading across generations.
