When it comes to personality traits, like just about everything else, too much of a good thing can be a bad thing. Every positive characteristic, when taken to the extreme, has a dark side that can impede professional development and limit career advancement. In this Harvard Business Review article, the author lists common personality traits, identifies their corresponding dark sides, and presents a personality assessment tool that can help business leaders better manage the behaviors and perceptions that will determine their professional success.
In addition to understanding their personalities and controlling their dark sides, senior executives must have the tools and insights to take on increasingly complex roles, drive innovation, and inspire trust at all levels of the organization. To help today's business leaders meet these challenges, Harvard Business School Executive Education offers a wide-ranging portfolio of leadership programs. Among these are three targeted offerings designed to help you examine your strengths and weaknesses as a leader, optimize your personal leadership style, develop a personal action plan for enhancing your skills, and inspire a culture of leadership across your organization.
Connect with a program advisor to discuss which program fits your goals and experience. You will receive a personalized consultation, access to other program resources, and details on related offerings.
