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.
This quote is absolutely true! Even one who is recognized as a “born leader” had to be taught the characteristics of leadership. He/she may have been taught by their mother, school teacher, coach etc but it was a learned trait, not genetic.
Everyone hates to be labeled as a “follower” (twitter is the exception lol). Now I myself would refer to my mentor as the teacher & me the student.
Wether you know it or not , you are the person you are today because of the people you associate with the most. Describe all of your closest friends & you’ll see what I mean.
