That's right good leaders are made not born. People can choose to become good leaders. People can learn leadership skills just as any other skill.However, they develop through a never ending process of study, training and experience. In order to motivate a group of people of achieve ambitious targets, there are certain things you must be, know and do. The basis of good leadership is honorable character and trust.
The definition of leadership from the world respected leader, Dr. Stephen R. Covey's words:
"Through years of study teaching and working with people all over the world, from all walks of life, I have determined that leadership is : Communicating to people their worth and potential so clearly that they come to see it in themselves. It is the influence we have with others to help them discover their own voice, to find their own purpose, to make their unique contribution, and to release their potential, that truly defines leadership. Thus, leadership extends to the many personal and professional roles we play - as workers, parents,children, teachers, students, swamis, you name it - and the choice we make to live by principles to help others find their voice."
So simply and wonderfully put, yet we get confused so many times thinking that leadership is all about us.
