Are leaders born or made?
Well, leaders are born, but only in la la land!!! You can be born with the traits of a leader but the right encouragement is a must for developing leadership skills.
While developing leadership skills at an early stage has its advantages, itís never too late to start if you havenít yet discovered the leader in you! And thatís not a whole load of motivational hogwash.
In this piece, letís take a look at the why and how of developing leadership skills.
Successful management requires more than just assigning tasks to the team. It calls for a leader who can inspire team members to achieve their full potential.

And thatís what developing leadership skills is all about.
