I have looked at the personality of six hugely successful companies. These are Airbnb (Chesky and Gebbia), Walmart (Sam Walton), Alibaba (Jack Ma), Apple (Steve Jobs), and Tesla (Elon Musk).
Based on this research, I have noted that all these founders had some common personality characteristics, which are:
- Undeterred by failure
- Supremely confident
Biographies on these individuals focus on their quirky behavior. For instance, Jobs is portrayed as a foul-mouthed, erratic personality who made life miserable for people. Elon Musk is portrayed as an individual subject to massive mood swings.
But it is the laser focus of these individuals that struck me as probably one of the major causes for the success of their companies.
