For any leader, vision is very important for example a CEO. Being a leader full knowledge of the business from the inside out is something that you must have. You should know exactly where the company is headed and where they ought to be. It is only at this point that you will be able to guide their employees under them and how to handle things. It is vision that dictates the decisions that should be made and the course of action to be taken in every situation. Through this the company and everyone in them gets a sense of direction.
One must be accessible and approachable by everyone in the company or business and this is another important quality that has been learned. The open-door system is the approach that has taken over. What this system means is that everyone can be able to approach the leadership without any difficulties and put across their hearts and mind concerning certain things that could be troubling them.
Respect is another great quality. If you want people to respect you also have to respect them because respect is one thing that is two-way. Respect your employees even though they are under you and are under your command because it is always good respect. This is very important because instead of commanding respect you and your respect and peaceful coexistence is fostered between you and your employees. As they are relating among themselves you will be a good example to them that they will emulate.
Learning from people even as you scale up the ladder is one thing that is also been pointed out. We learn from different people around us even those that are below us for instance employees. As you scale up the career ladder, it is important that you continue learning from people and not to despise anyone. Whatever you learn all is make sure you apply and put into practice so that it ceases to be knowledge but it may also transform you.
Finally, it is good to be honest and true to yourself and others. People will likewise be true to you as you become true to them.
