BORN or MADE…either or both?

Have really thought on a topic whether a leader is born or made… Before our discussion in class I favored viewpoint that leadership qualities are hard to be nurtured - they are passed on through genes and develop due to child’s cultural and social environment he/she is growing in. A kid does not go to courses to create those features therefore they are developing naturally.

After a number of quite reasonable examples and ideas, perhaps, my perception shattered a bit, since any person has some leadership qualities that might differ greatly. Leader not in its HERO retrospective also can be called so because they might be those who will follow… The answer is as always that there is not one right answer)))

  1. I like the very last sentence of yours, Vera. But I think, that given the right conditions and for a set criteria, we may be able to answer correctly.

    And I think it is right to co-relate the degree of success and the leadership. not the leadership alone!!! There is good chance for a good performing team to celebrate victory despite the poor leadership but that leadership may be considered as effective or winner’s strategy… can we justify that?
