An uninvolved CEO
A calm manager
 
Your answers throughout the test indicate that you have the character of a very relaxed person who can become the most beloved CEO in the world, or alternatively, a burden on the company that drives your employees crazy, because you have a clear preference for a management style that takes a step back from real involvement focusing mostly on things relating to general management as opposed to the nitty-gritty details. You may not have the desire to be a strict manager who interferes with every little detail, and this is welcome, but it is possible that the people who depend on you won't receive the feedback they want or need. you may feel that you've earned this separation when getting promoted, and while you definitely deserve to take it easy, life isn’t that simple. The people around you, at work, at home as well as your friends, want your help and enjoy your experience and way of thinking, so for your own good and for your own sake, try being more involved in things that are important to you.
A friendly CEO
friendly Manager
 
According to the answers you selected in this test, you seem to have amazing interpersonal skills, and it is very hard not to get excited about you and your sweeping charisma. As a result, the management style that best fits your personality is the friendly CEO - a leader with a very strong positive impact on his/her workplace, and we are confident that even if we look at your behavior in other frameworks, we’ll see something very similar. However, you have a very difficult time dealing with dramatic situations, and very negative people are simply something you don’t understand and therefore find difficult to take care of. Our advice to you would be to stay away from such things in your work and personal life and continue to focus on all that is positive, and the day you get that promotion might come sooner than you think…
A balanced CEO
Serious manager
 
According to your answers, you seem to be a very balanced person, and if you suddenly step into the CEO's chair, you’ll try to do everything in your power to create a comfortable working environment for everyone. This might seem like a negligible fact but people like you – that don’t let power get to their heads - are quite rare, and you probably always knew how to manage stressful situations in a calm and reasonable way. When you have a goal-oriented and skilled team surrounding you, there is no greater asset than you to your workplace, group of friends, or even your family circle. Remember that there will be people who will try to take advantage of you, and it does not matter if one day you really will be CEO or not - negative influences need to be removed from your life and environment.
A detail-oriented CEO
A desk with lots of documents
 
Your answers indicate that you are a person who always tries to pay attention to every little detail and analyze its meaning and importance. In fact, we’d be shocked if you hadn’t already guessed what your results would be…during our test, your answers show that you have a set of skills that can make you a very talented CEO, but also one that focuses exclusively on the details and forgets the bigger picture and the human factor involved in almost every aspect of life. Keep in mind that most people like to have a degree of freedom of action and choice, and this is true in all walks of life, including relationships and parenting. to help you cope with this tendency in your work and personal life, we just recommend you trust the people around you more. You might be disappointed from time to time, but that’s just the way the world works and it's better to accept this then try to fight it.
A goal-driven CEO

In your opinion, most people who receive great responsibility and power don’t know how to best utilize it, but you plan to act differently ... When someone gives you the authority and resources to lead your company, you’ll turn it into a well-oiled machine very quickly. There’s no doubt that this will contribute a lot to your success and that of the company, but along the way, you’ll have to make quite a few difficult decisions and hurt some people who don’t work exactly the way you need them too. It's a shame that this is the case because there’s no reason to act in a forceful and aggressive manner when there are other options out there. We encourage you to keep this in mind in all aspects of your life because if you do, you’ll find that you can get amazing results without leaving behind people you care about and stomping all over their feelings. Once you learn how to do this you will be a winning leader, who can certainly be the CEO of any company in the world!
