Tech. Com #6: Great Leaders are not born, they are made.

“The leader of a group of people or an organization is the person who is in control of it or in charge of it.”- Collins Cobuild Dictionary

“Leaders are made, not born, and made more by themselves than by any external means. Second that no leader sets out to be a leader, but rather to express himself freely and fully.” – Warren Bennis, 

“Leaders aren’t born, they are made. And they are made just like anything else, through hard work. And that’s the price we’ll have to pay to achieve that goal, or any goal."
– Vince Lombardi

“Leadership is an observable, learnable set of practices. Leadership is not something mystical and ethereal that cannot be understood by ordinary people. Given the opportunity for feedback and practice, those with the desire and persistence to lead can substantially improve their abilities to do so.” – James Kouzes and Barry Posner

Some people believe that leaders are born with the necessary qualities that make them successful as a leader. While others believe that leadership, like many other similar characteristics, can be learned and developed through life. For me, I think much of the debate depends on how you define leadership. Leaders are made when they understanding their purpose, their unique strengths and have a deep passion to make a difference by living out whom they are in the real world.We're all born with potential and we can all develop the traits of leadership. Leaders are definitely made - not born. But the environment will determine whether potential leaders can develop their talent.

The truth is the most people have the potential to become leaders. The real issue is that leadership takes time to develop
  • People need time to figure out what they’re passionate about
  • People need time to understand their personal vision and purpose
  • People need time to learn how to express who they
  • People need time to learn how to use their unique strengths and skills
  • People need time to learn how to express their purpose in their own unique way.
