Great Leaders are Not Born, They are Made

What is leadership? To us leadership is the art of motivating a group of people to act towards achieving a common goal. Leaders are the inspiration and director of the action. Leaders possess the combination of personality and skills that makes others want to follow his or her direction.

The question now is? Do great leaders are made? or they are born to be great leaders? Successful leaders know how to define their mission, convey it to their subordinates and ensure they have the right tools and training needed to get the job done whereas a false leader is someone who fails to get the necessary resources for his or her staff to do their job. In other way, a false leader is someone who fails to inspire the team to a greater height.

However, failure is not the end of the road. Great leaders are made, not born. They learn from trial and error and from experience. When something goes wrong, a great leader learns from the experience, puts it behind him/her and go on to achieve greater things. 

There are people who tend to have the talent to lead people but sometimes their ego is too big than this whole world to learn from mistakes and take critics seriously. Human being will always make mistakes. It is up to the individual to analyze his/her mistake and move on to achieve great things in life. The secret to be a great leader? Be positive and open your mind ; and not to forget a little piece of talent of course :D
