I found an interesting infographic on the names of CEO’s on Linkedin. It seems that if your name is Peter or Deborah you are destined for success. Whereas top sales people and CEO’s all have names that are shorter than four letters (something to think about on your next sales hire). It should have been obvious but successful restaurant owners have much longer and creative foreign names.

If this seems a little tongue and cheek- it is. I don’t actually believe that a name determines your success. I believe that hard work, wisdom, insight, leadership and guts make you successful. Maybe the Jacks of this world just take a few more calculated risks – if so, lets learn the lesson from him and start getting a few more Mike’s, Jenny’s, and Johan’s into the CEO leader-board. I thought the infographic was fun so here it is:
