Are leaders born or made?

Time to Read – 2  minutes

(This week’s NL Week is the second extract taken from my rejected article for Training Journal. – )

…another mission critical question that is at the very top of every Board Agenda – the question asked by every Director just before they ask themselves how they are going to ensure their organisation’s survival for another week.

But if you absolutely insist on answering this question, then my advice is go for “Made.” You don’t agree? OK, then go for “Born,” just make sure you believe you were born in the right part of the hospital…

Get this – no-one knows, and neither will they ever know, for a fact, in your lifetime. Leave this one in your will so the question can be passed down through subsequent generations until someone many years from now can provide us with a definitive, factual answer.

Meantime, get busy living.

Nadine Taylor, Group L and D Manager for The Phoenix Group, wrote to me recently – “My team are not measured by how much we know, we are measured by how effectively we get others to deliver value to our bottom line. What’s not to understand about that?”

With my love to you all
