Are leaders born or made?
Some theories of leadership suggest that leaders are born since they possess some inherit qualities, some others that they are made, because many qualities can be learned by training and experience. In what position you are?
Since I am one of those people who thinks that a musician is 20% talent and 80% studies and practice, I go for the idea that a part of the leader composition are his/her inherit characteristics such as passion and drive plus a bigger part that is result of that person's learning experience and training.
I believe as human beings, we always have the opportunity of learning and growing, so our leadership skills can be nurture into our way of being (if that is what you want). There is a phrase we use in Colombia "nadie nace aprendidio" which means noone is born learned, we have our whole life for learning, and if being leaders is what we want, we will have several opportunities for sharpening our skills and become the leader we want to be.
