One common trait I have noticed in all corporate topshots--they are extremely happy all the time and full of vital energy . And this shows on their actions and behaviour. When my program manager walks into the floor to address the team , he lights up the floor with his energy and enthusiasm . Not a single dull moment in his talk . I have noticed this with all the CEOs as well . They are extremely cheerful and energetic. Such energy and enthusiasm attracts people to you , and is a very vital component in a prospective CEO's personality .
