Personality / leadership typology patterns (outil)

The notion of soft skills is believed  to have appeared in US army documents in the 60's.

Concomitantly, several research on personality / leadership were conducted in American universities.

Some of these research have given birth to methods and practices which have been the initial assets to create leadership training / editing companies. 

In most of these methods, a key element might be pointed out : it is a typology of personality / leadership styles which is conveyed through a pattern.
