This might be one of the most frightening and commonly bantered phrase in the market today, and it comes with some sobering implications. The reality that Leadership are being asked to accomplish more than last year, using fewer resources and resulting in higher levels of control, seems like an insurmountable task. How can improved results be accomplished using fewer people, spending less money, and resulting in better control – in this market?
There seems to be debate about whether Leaders are born or raised. Some believe that leaders are born and no amount of training or conditioning can replicate their ability. Others hold that Leadership is a trainable skill and that it can be transferred from one person to another. Certainly we all agree that some Leaders are better at what they do, than others. However, the most accurate answer to the Leadership debate is probably; YES.
