research into leadership skills has revealed an intriguing geographical split
across the UK when it comes to naming the greatest public leader of all time.
research, conducted by communications consultancy Mentor, asked 1,000 UK
employees which public figures have the best leadership qualities in terms of
motivating and inspiring others.
results show Richard Branson as the favourite in the South, while Winston
Churchill comes out on top in the North.
Carter, director of Mentor, said: “It’s difficult to say why there is such a
strong split between North and South, but probably the strongest common bond is
the ability to overcome adversity or perform beyond expectations.”
survey was carried out as part of a wider piece of research into leadership
qualities and communication skills.
