The essential qualities of the top management



The essential qualities of the top management

You may come across situations where two individuals have the same qualification and possess equal skills, but one is more successful than the other in their professional careers. Why it is so that two individuals pass with the same grade and marks do not stand at the same point of success. Why the one reaches the peak and the other does not.  It is also observed that sometimes even less qualified people perform better than their highly qualified and skilled counterparts. Why is it so? Have you ever thought of analyzing this syndrome?

Academic qualification, educational background or acquisition of skills does not decide success, but it mainly depends on the way how the individual works. Success magnificently depends on one’s pattern of working, and the same comes from a person’s behavior or attitude towards his job. Behavior is the means of showing interpersonal and managerial skills. It is not merely the smartness but the individual’s capability to transform his smartness into actions so as to get a maximum output which is the main determinant of success for any performer.

As per the eminent psychologist Mr. Kenneth Nowack, persons possessing the knowledge and excellent skills establish themselves as the top performers and their success ratio is very high.  Apart from this, they show tremendous will power and motivation in their career. This mental power which these top performers deploy often makes them extraordinary. Managers must identify these qualities and utilize the same for the purpose or organizational growth. Managers can also use the styles; choices and methods of the top performers and make them ideal for others.

Nowack suggests that major qualities of successful people are the value of happiness, achievements, and relationship.  People who achieve a high degree of success in their career always emphasize on these personality traits. Apart from this, the high performers concentrate and believe in hard work, possess tremendous interpersonal skills, lack the nature of avoiding their responsibilities and do not indulge in any outburst resulting out of anger. They find out ways to curb emotional dysfunction so as to maintain complete concentration in their each and every endeavor. These people know better how to garner support from others and effectively utilize it for better performance of the organization.  They profusely invest their time to keep mentally and physically fit.

At the workplace, successful people do purposeful activities and keep a long term perspective of their career in mind. They go on improving their methodologies to accomplish the assignment, and they willingly accept feedback from others. These people assertively communicate with authority, express their views confidently and provide assistance to the needy. Because of these qualities, they are often recognized as cooperative people at their workplace. Some of these people are inherent with these qualities and cling to them throughout their career. These traits can be used by organizations to train their people for company success.  Experts have identified the following three qualities which are predominantly found in the top performers.


This quality helps a person to know his strengths/weaknesses and methodologies to complete the work assigned to him.  His knowledge of his above attributes makes him capable enough to plan and complete the job more effectively. So, employees of any organization should be completely tuned to identify their strengths and weaknesses for the benefit of the organization as well as the benefit of their own.


People must be very versatile to attain success in their professional career. They have to continuously upgrade their capability by adopting new methods and processes to refine their day to day activities.  They must be willing to accept changes in the workplace. They have to follow the best practices being followed by others and this is required for their betterment. In this process, if required, they have to change their behavioral pattern to suit other’s styles for their self-development as well as the overall growth of the organization.  

Versatility means adaptability and ability to mix with others to ensure easy going of the work. You will be able to find out the solution through the application of confrontation and conflict management at the workplace. And this is one of the desired elements to ensure the efficacy of an organization in today’s management.  Managers who believe in versatility and are adaptable to the needs of the team remain successful in their professional career. Researches establish that the managers with this quality stand more superior in comparison with the ordinary ones. They are twenty-five percent better in leading their teams.

Interpersonal relations:

The third Q is the interpersonal relationship.  If you possess the good interpersonal skill, you can make/see through changes in the workplace. The level of enthusiasm of the workforce is raised considerably and so productivity. The workplace will automatically be agog full of positive energies. Each and every person will be able to interact with others very effectively.  When you inculcate this habit among your team members, they will be able to extract work from one another irrespective of their differences in background, culture, and nationality.

In today’s competitive business environment, apart from an educational background, you must possess the soft skill of interpersonal relationship to help you lift your career graph and produce excellent results. So, these 3 Qs are important for any person to prosper professionally. The top performers always give importance to these personality traits.
