#1 Trait of Successful Executives
I often get asked this question by executives looking for their next opportunity, “What can I do to differentiate myself?” My answer is three little words: Create online authority. Today’s executive is a multi-million dollar brand that needs to showcase their expertise in the form of a platform that educates others on their value. Resumes and bios are useless. They all look the same. Instead, savvy executives are carving out a niche for themselves and attracting better the attention of Private Equity, Venture Capital, and Executive Search firms by creating online content that proves their authority in their space. Using their industry knowledge and problem solving expertise, they share insights that prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are exceptional at what they do. The result is companies knocking on their door asking them for advice and offering them unparalleled career opportunities.

Every hiring manager looks for different skills in the job candidates they're hoping to hire. Not only are job candidates being evaluated on the hard skills they possess; they're also being evaluated on their soft skills—the skills that don't belong on a resume but can be identified during a job interview. It's these soft skills that separate the good employees from the great ones. Executives, managers, and other leaders within an organization keep this in mind when interviewing job candidates and reviewing the performance of current employees.
