What are some of the key qualities a young IT leader ought to have when stepping into the C/suite?

Values, Leadership I feel that the key quality was probably that an IT head shouldn't carry around a baggage of legacy systems. Traditionally, even though I come from an ERP background at Oracle, I was the one who opted out of these legacy systems and opted for a cloud/based solution which was not readily available. Writing a blueprint for information without having a baggage was an added advantage for me. I also had management support who bought my vision and actually rolled it out across for the next five years.
