In my opinion - the way I would speak - there are "requirements for something to happen" and there are "requirements of a person or people" and sometimes "requirements of a post or job".

The requirements for becoming a Navajo singer are that one is a Navajo, and that one can sing.
The requirements of a Navajo singer are food, water, air, and all the things everyone else requires.
The requirements for (becoming a) Managing Director are: skill in management, ability to handle people, ability to work under pressure, etc. (The things a managing director is required to BE).

The requirements of a Managing Director are: juniors who will do their own jobs without orders, access to ALL the information of the company, good communication lines with juniors and with the owners/investors. (The things required to be in the environment so that the manager can do his/her job).
