There is an age-old debate about whether true leaders are born or made. There is also a strong argument that leaders are born with certain innate gifts, but that they also need to be properly shaped in order for them to become true leaders.
Being a true leader means that you have exceptional qualities. Leadership capabilities determine a person’s level of effectiveness. The higher you want to climb, the more leadership capabilities you require.
Also, the greater the impact you want to make, the greater your influence should be. If you are not influential, you will never be able to lead. A person has achieved excellence as a leader when people follow that person everywhere, even if it is just out of curiosity.
An effective leader leads with integrity, develops individuals and is able to prioritise in order to encourage positive change. Only a changed leader can change the direction of an organisation. A spirit of excellence and a positive attitude that inspire those around them will be evident in a leader’s passion, vision and self-discipline.
