So, this survey was supposedly based on these particular "skills":
More than 100 professors responded, rating Obama and Romney on the 10 competencies of LeaderCORE:
problem solving/decision making, global and diversity mindset, strategic thinking, team leadership, team skills, communication, interpersonal skills,
integrity, results orientation and self-management/adaptability.
According to the survey, here's what gave Obama's his highest marks:
According to the results, Obama particularly showed strength as a leader in global and diversity mindset, communication and interpersonal skills.
Obama's ability to adapt in the ever-changing landscape of health care reform and his stance on gay marriage also earned him high marks in
adaptability and results orientation.
So, in essence, they're saying that Obama has better leadership skills because he comes from a diverse background, is better at communicating fluff,
knows how to work the system and bribe members of Congress into voting for Obamacare while supporting gay marriage, even though he didn't always
support gay marriage in the beginning.
I thought it was funny that they didn't see any significant differences between the two when it came to the skills of "team leadership" and "team
skills". I would love to know how Obama's ability/non-ability to work with Congress affected this ranking. Also, unless any of these professors
lived in Massachusetts, I doubt any of them knew one thing about Mitt Romney's skills.
I couldn't help but notice too that the skill of "strategic thinking" and "integrity" was left unmentioned altogether in this article.
