In the company or business, one important quality is that one must be accessible and approachable by everyone. The approach that is taking over is the open-door policy.

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.
The last important thing is even to yourself and others, you must be true and honest. Be true to others and they will also do the same for.
