Are Leaders Born or Made?
Play • 11 min

One of the most common questions I get about leadership is this: Are leaders born, or made? It is the common "nature versus nurture" question, which we will be going through in today's podcast.  So in any good debate, you need to hear both sides. Side One: leaders are born, Side Two leaders are made. 

We’ll look at data from sport (do big feet mean you’ll be a good swimmer?), twin studies (if leaders are born, are identical twins with 100% of the same genes both good leaders/bad leaders?) are extroverts good leaders (and introverts a weak second), and data business psychology (what percentage can be learnt?). 

It’s a data rich episode, but as always, I finish with a tip for you to level up your leadership 1%, starting today.
