Stephen Appiah on five leadership qualities

Empathy
Empathy simply means putting yourself in people’s shoes so that you can feel what they feel. When you do that, you will always take decisions that will help people and not hurt them.

Communication
The people you are dealing with are human beings, not animals. Talk to them. Hear their side of the story. Always consider them before making decisions.

Courage
Not every decision you will take as a leader will be popular. But if you really believe it is the right thing. You have to be bold and go ahead.

Never stop learning
In life, I have learned that what you knew yesterday may no more be relevant today. So leaders must always invest in educating themselves all the time.

Humility
No matter how high you are, you must still remain a servant as a leader. It is only when you serve that you can be a good leader.
