Are You A Bit Of A Dragon?

No I am not talking the gatekeeper to management. Do you have the characteristics of an entrepreneur? Research by Adrian Furnham, Professor of psychology at University College London shows some interesting things about dragons. They are not motivated by money, but more by success, high quality, helping others and creating something of lasting value.

They are good at dealing with failure and picking themselves up. They take the long term rather than short term view, are self-confident, have expertise, are proactive and create their own luck and opportunities. They question the status quo, keep an eye on efficiency and monitor and evaluate success.  They are committed to others and show integrity and reliability, take calculated risks and are comfortable with uncertainty.

Sounds like a good attitude to have and way to be, and better than mediocrity and complacency, plus good people to shake up some companies. Are you an entrepreneur?  Could you be? Download our free 30 page ‘Pain free career change’ report and see if the grass could be greener. Click on this link:
