Does height play a factor in your leadership presence?

shortie

one thing i have noticed at my work place is there are proportionally more taller people in the higer rankings of the firm.

My friend who works in a law firm has also noticed the same.

Does height form the alpha male and does he have the higher chance of forming the leader over someone shorter?

look at history and you'll see that most of world leaders weren't tall at all! e.g. napoleon, alexander the great, hitler...

unfortunately there is far too much research to suggest that taller people get paid more on average and thus occupy positions of higher status.

do you know that IBM in the 50's had a minimum height requirement?

its still good to see short people making it somewhere in industry and goes to show that you can't measure the height of someone's brain by their physical appearance.
