According to a recent study of 5,000 businesses across 100+ countries, exceptional Leadership distils itself in to 2 key traits – Wisdom and Compassion.
‘Wisdom, the courage to do what needs to be done, even when it is difficult; and Compassion, the care and empathy shown toward others, combined with the intention to support and help’ – explains the Researchers on HBR.
In a way, great Leadership is doing hard things in a human way.

both traits are exceptional and to display in tough situations and are definitely a hallmark of a great leader
Endorse that. Very true. Seen these traits in successful leaders. Compassion in itself gives the leader an impetus towards a broader vision.
Agree PK . One way to do this for a leader is to say to himself He is first among equals and behave in an appropriate manner .
