I would have to say a little bit of both. You must have the drive to be a leader, however with that being said leaders are made. It is not something that happens overnight, it is something you work towards – develop your leadership skills which are learnable traits.
If your goal is to become a leader, here are some skills that you can work towards to be an effective leader.
- Positivity is key
If you panic the team panics and that’s not good! No matter how challenging or disheartening, it is important to respond positively.
- Recognize Good Work
The most effective leaders recognize and reward others in their company who generate new ideas or work especially hard.
