In a straightforward manner, he defines the five qualities a leader must have in order to reach any major position, whether it is an army general job or a chief Executive of a major company.

By having those qualities you will also ensure that, you will succeed once you attained such a position of leadership. Here are Sun Tzu five qualities of leaders:

  • Caring have and show genuine concern for your people and for your customers

  • Courage To take the necessary decisive actions to capitalise on opportunities
  • Discipline Tough but ruthlessly fair to manage the business
