Leadership Myths: People Are Born Leaders

How often have you heard people say that some people are just born leaders? 

While some people might have some attributes that can help them to more easily make the transition to leadership, truth is leadership skills can be developed.

There are a number of ways of doing this:

  1. Going on a course
  2. Getting a coach or mentor
  3. Shadowing a senior person
  4. Reading books
  5. Reading e-zines
  6. Listening to podcasts
  7. Taking a formal qualification
