A study by the University of Kent has identified the physical characteristics associated with good managers. It’s not enough to be tough, resourceful and calm your appearance can play a part in how you are perceived as a boss.
Scientist form the university used forensic technology after interviewing 200 managers and other employees to assess the attributes of potential managers. Appearance is just as crucial as attitude scientist found, for male managers a pronounced brow and forehead were found to be trusted while for women, thin eyebrows, wider eyes and fuller lips made up the face of an inspirational leader.
Employees want a boss with the confidence of experience and somebody who will rise to the challenge and make brave decisions.
