Leadership Style: born or made
Are you born with a particular leadership style, or can you learn one?

Leadership Style: born or made
I believe that to be an affective leader, leadership style is something that you can learn and be able to adapt depending on the situation.

Style of Leadership
imran ali mir
Leaders are born with some inherited genes of leadership, but need to polish with situations faced by them.

Imran is absolutely right!! Leadership is an inborn quality which needs polishing by handling different situations. Leadership cannot be taught, it is developed ...

Leadership Style: born or made
Imran and Niks are absolutely wrong!! Leadership is a behaviour and behaviours can be (and are) learned, from birth to death. I suggest you do some reading on the subject before showing your ignorance. If you still think you're right, identify the leadership gene....

Leadership Style: born or made
Dawit Aynachew
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.
