Importance of integrity: Strictly following a moral and ethical code give institutions their value and a good leader must uphold this value and carry it forward. He mentioned integrity spans generations and is not one to be outdated.
Good judgement: Good judgement is not only intelligence, Ahn stated, but also courage, character and flexibility in their daily tasks. One must be able to adapt to changing times such as technology etc.
Lead by example: Always do what you expect others to do. Show them how they must handle tasks. Setting a good example is very important trend in good leadership. People follow more of what they see around the work environment, and rarely what they are only told in memos and manuals.
