What a nice question
well if we talk about prehistoric till bronze era then definetely leaders are born but in present days leaders are made oppppppps infact thrust on us.
This remind me the famous saying of GB Shah " Some are born Great, Some achieve Greatnes and some are thrust upon them".

I have gone thru various views expressed here. However most of them have a perception of word "Leader" means only political leaders. However I would like to share my opinion that Leaders doesn't means only political leaders. Leader means those who have the qualities of impressing/influencing the superiors as well as juniors. They present in every field of life like Education & other fields also. These qualities what they carries are the blend of born characteristics as well as the made (learned) qualities. If somebody dont have all the qualities like talent, confidence, communication skills, knowledge, co-operative, motivating nature, honesty, dedication, determination (decision making), discipline etc the I would say he will not be a perfect leader. These qualities are blend of Born as well Learned qualities.

I would like to share my own example. Recently I left the job due to this fact only. I was working in the marketing department with a multinational company. My boss was very ...more

Hi all,
i think you are just considering the word leader and giving the Possible definitions... Leader is not somebody like a shepard. Hw must have the Qualitys like, Decision making, responsibility, Guiding others...etc and above all of them Insipring his followers. These qualitys cannot be learnt from any one, few people are born with these qualitys, and this People can be Great Leaders.....
You can learn few Qualitys from your Superiors and others,,,, But still
"Leaders are born not made"

Some are born great, some achieve greatness, whereas some are, upon whom greatness is thrust upon, is an old adage. This applies to the cadre of leaders like-wise too. To illustrate as such late Sri Rajiv Gandhi, having been a commercial pilot has had to bear the brunt of becoming the then prime minister of India by sheer virtue of the times and circumstances prevailing at the material time in the country !!!
Hence he just had been a leader not only by dint of political heritage but also that he could achieve greatness thereafter during his PMship..
