There are several books and articles on leadership. Many of them focus on leadership styles and approaches such as selecting the right people, or getting the wrong people off the bus, or motivating the right behavior, or using a dance metaphor in a leadership-followership paradigm. The important character traits that a leader must possess are rarely mentioned. This paper focuses on two qualities that a great leader must possess, namely humility and a strong sense of ethics.
