- Able to build a strong corporate culture;
- Willing to cater to the under-served;
- Able to spot potential winners or faint trends before rivals;
- Adept at building competitive advantages;
- Excellent at managing and building their organization's brand;
- Fast learners;
- Skilled at managing risk.
