What traits or skills are essential for a business leader?

You must have integrity, and you must have a strong drive and will to succeed. You must also be a good communicator. You need to take your job seriously, but you also need to keep your ego in check. I think the best thing to do is to take your job seriously, but don’t take yourself too seriously.
