Love & Respect for his partners: According to Joseph Bismark, a successful leader needs to love his partners and employees, no matter what is happening with his business. As he commonly says, “If you have a good team, you can go into roaring sea without any second thought.” He always wanted his employees, his team, to be a happy bunch of guys, who actually don’t feel like working at all. For him, work should be like an activity, which everyone enjoys.
A leader leads from the front: Joseph Bismark always believed, “A true leader always leads from the front.” He was a very realistic guy and always tried to push his team forward by setting examples.

But, leaders are a different breed altogether, they unlike any other person, are very good listeners.
