Week 2: Are leaders born or made?

1 1 unread reply. 1 1 reply.

Some folks believe that true leaders are born that way. “Either you got it, or you ain’t got it.”  Others believe that leaders can be developed and trained: leadership skills can be acquired even if one is not naturally gifted with such.

Consider this question:  Is leadership an innate trait with which one is born, or is leadership a skill that one can learn?  Answer this question.

Share your thoughts with the class, and back them up with examples, quotes, and/or articles.
