Leadership Style: born or made

This to me is like asking, “Are artists born or made?”. Although there may not be a responsible gene for the inborn ability, we cannot deny that there is an inborn propensity for leadership as there is one for being an artist. However, anything uncultivated eventually becomes nothing, regardless of it's an innate advantage. Hence,
1) There’s a potential for leadership in all and it comes at varied intensity at birth, and
2) Training polishes it.
The nearest the mixture approaches pick, the best the leader would be.
