We are in a highly competitive economy with international mantra being cost, quality & service for success of any company. But given the important role today’s managers play in getting outstanding performance from their associates, the responsibility of directing the associates in desired direction and inspiring & motivating them assumes added importance. Then naturally a question arises as to what is that a manager or leader needs to do to succeed in corporate life. In other words, are there any traits/qualities one must imbibe/inculcate to succeed in life? In my view two qualities are of paramount importance for someone’s success namely integrity & relationships. Let’s briefly look at them, their importance & how they hold a person in high esteem.

Abstract


We are in a highly competitive economy with international mantra being cost, quality & service for success of any company. But given the important role today’s managers play in getting outstanding performance from their associates, the responsibility of directing the associates in desired direction and inspiring & motivating them assumes added importance. Then naturally a question arises as to what is that a manager or leader needs to do to succeed in corporate life. In other words, are there any traits/qualities one must imbibe/inculcate to succeed in life? In my view two qualities are of paramount importance for someone’s success namely integrity & relationships. Let’s briefly look at them, their importance & how they hold a person in high esteem.
