They say that some people are born natural leaders. While true, it shouldn’t discourage others from striving to lead if they feel so inclined. We’re all innately good at something (whether we know it or not), but many of the things we do in life need to be learned. In fact, it’s a common belief that power best suits those who didn’t seek it in the first place. Just look at George Washington, who didn’t even want the position in the first place, refusing to be made king of the new country; LOST‘s Jack Shepard who becomes the de facto leader after the other characters begin seeking his advice on all matters and treating him as such; or even Prince Albert, Duke of York, as popularized by The King’s Speech, who would have liked nothing more than to live quietly with his nice family, but came into power after his brother Edward VIII turned out to be a complete screwup.
Sure, not everyone is meant to lead, but much like the lessons we take from other areas of discipline (which The Art Of presents with events such as The Art of Marketing and last year’s The Art of Leadership), it doesn’t mean we can’t learn from other leaders.
A fact that The Art Of thoroughly supports with their next instalment of The Art of Leadership!
