Moving up the hierarchy is always desired, but it is not at all easy. There are various skills which should be checked if you want to be a good boss at work:
Stand by your team
First thing should be focusing on your employees, then the others. If you are there to boost your team at stressful times, they will feel motivated.
Observe every bit
To prevent problems, you will have to be observant. If you follow up and observe things that you see and hear, you have an extremely valuable skill.
Willing to learn
Whatever be your post at office, you must learn new things. You should have a will to learn from your colleagues, clients and bosses.
The most obvious thing is the talent to complete the tasks on time efficiently with available resources. This inspires your juniors too.
