Positive Quote: “The most dangerous leadership myth is that leaders are born-that there is a genetic factor to leadership. That’s nonsense; in fact, the opposite is true. Leaders are made rather than born.” – Warren Bennis
I very much agree with this quote’s sentiment. Being a leader is not easy and I don’t know anyone who would say they were born with the skills.
I would also say that leadership styles evolve with time and experience. I am a different leader today that I was 15 years ago. (Thankfully)
Being a leader takes an investment of time, dedication, desire, and willingness to keep going when out of your element and comfort zone.
I like to think of it as leadership under construction.
What do you think?
Have a great day!
