So are we born to lead or are we forged to greatness through adversity and lots of hard work?
Some people definitely seem to have innate leadership characteristics:
Other people maybe weren’t born with it, but they learn to become great leaders through:
– Hard Work
– Willingness to learn
– Continuous improvement
– Motivation to advance
– Finding a meaningful mission
– Belief that they can make a difference
– Faith that G-d is guiding them
Like with most things in our life, it’s a combination of nature and nurture.
Good raw material starts us off on the right track and then forging it with fire and a hammer and polishing it off into a great sword with hardness, strength, flexibility, and balance.
As Joanna Coles, Chief Content Officer at Hearst Magazine says:
“I’m an overnight sensation 30 years in the making.”
Birth is just the beginning… 😉
