Is leadership, mastery, and genius born or made?
I submit the answer is BOTH.
An individual may be born with a high IQ for instance, or the gift of being able to hear perfect pitch, or strong athletic talent.
Research by Lewis Terman, the pioneer in educational psychology from Stanford, proves that most individuals he tracked with a very high level of gift did little to nothing with it.
Because it came easy to them, they didn't work very hard.
So leadership and genius in any field cannot just be born, It must be made, right?
Not so fast...
