To be or not to be a leader???

"LEADERS ARE BORN NOT MADE". This is an old adage that engaged my thought on leadership today as a sat in class trying to decipher the old adage.Remixing this adage, i would say "LEADERS ARE BORN AND MADE".

There is a leader in everybody,some naturally display the key characteristics and some grow or i would say develop those key charcteristics. For a 'Born'(EMERGENT LEADERS) and 'Made' leader, it all boils down to Self discovery and self awareness.

For a leader who is born, its more of a journey of self-awareness. He knows that he already dislay those trait that makes a leader but what makes the ideal leader out of a born leader is being self aware of those traits and getting the best out of it . A 'Made' leader on the other end is a combination of both self awareness and self discovery, discovering those hidden traits and building on them to get the best out of it. whether we aspire to be or not to be a leader, we all have a leadership capability some established,some explored but not tapped and some not explored.
