Leadership


I believe that leaders are born and not made.  Leadership and management schools merely take people with a natural leadership talent and make them better.  I feel it is impossible to make someone a good leader.  It is the old nature or nurture argument.  I think it is nature and not nurture.  If  you watch children playing in a playground at age three, after about five minutes you can identify the leaders among the children.  If you were to track them into their adult lives you would be amazed at how many of the leaders on the playground are leaders as adults.  From a distance you can see the little girl or little boy who is in charge of what is going on at the playground.  It is easy to see who the children are listening to and following as they play.  Check it out and you will see that it is true.
