Recently I was tasked to write an essay on whether a leader is born or if a leader is made (trained). This is an extension of the age old question that asks, what came first? The chicken or the egg? Jokes aside, the question on whether leadership (or any other skill/ability) is innate and inborn or is it something you can acquire with training and experience. The answer may not be as simple and it may be difficult to answer that question in a 500 word essay. However, the fact is whether you’re aware of it or not and whether you like it or not, you are influencing (leading) people every day. I would like to illustrate this fact with two short video clips.
