This is the most basic and most often-asked question about leadership. Psychology Today published a study in march 2009 and said “to cut to the chase, the answer is: ‘mostly made.’ The best estimates offered by research is that leadership is about one-third born and two-thirds made. The job of leading an organization, a military unit, or a nation, and doing so effectively, is fantastically complex. To expect that a person would be born with all of the tools needed to lead just doesn’t make sense based on what we know about the complexity of social groups and processes.” We have been helping coach, mold, develop, and shape emerging leaders for more than 25 years. Our leadership development works because it’s pragmatic, based in the real-world, and helps the leader hone their self-awareness and skills.
