For any leader, vision is very important for example a CEO. As a leader you must be able to have full knowledge of the business from the inside out. One thing you must have in mind is where the company is headed and where it ought to be. It is until then that they’ll be able to guide employees and those under them on how things should be handled. It is vision that dictates the decisions that should be made and the course of action to be taken in every situation. This gives the company and everyone in them a sense of direction.

In the company or business, one important quality is that one must be accessible and approachable by everyone. 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. It is always good to respect your employees even though they are under you and under your command. The importance of this is that instead of commanding respect you and respect and peaceful coexistence is created between you and your employees. As they are relating among themselves you will be a good example to them that they will emulate.

Even as you scale up the ladder, one thing that has also been pointed out is learning from people. Even from people who were below as for instance employees, we always learn from those people around us. 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.

But not least, it is important to be true and honest with yourself and others. People will likewise be true to you as you become true to them.
