In my opinion, everyone is born but only some become leaders because leaders are made. If our society is not good we all will think to make it a good one but we all are scared of the hardships that we have to go through but only some people who accept the hardships becomes a leader.

Hi friends, According to me leaders born but actually who can handle any situation as well as required.

Love, humble, compassionate qualities. Yes, people, they have to make entry anywhere education is required, educated person can manage many things diplomatically. Those are leaders from there childhood automatically he gets the position like a monitor in the class, join the college politics, stands in election like this. Business school can help them to explore their qualities. But leaders born.

Hi guys.

In my opinion, I believe that everyone exists on this planet are born, including leaders also, but leaders are made with their skills, practice, experience, perception, personality and training.

Everyone born with some qualities but it depends on the individual that when he realises his qualities and how he shows it. It can start with an incident or a situation.

I can take the example of the great freedom fighter BHAGAT SINGH. At the age of 13, he joined Gandhiji in his non-cooperation movement. But he was very disappointed when Gandhi abandoned this movement. This incident leaves a great impact on bhagat's mind or we can say it is the turning point of the life of Bhagat Singh. From there he realises he leadership qualities.

One of the great examples of his leadership was, he was the founder of HSRA i.e. HINDUSTAN SOCIALIST REPUBLIC ASSOCIATION.

So, the leaders are not exactly born, they are made with time.

Leaders are neither made in Business school nor born, Business school teaches us to become the leader and one has to practice leadership qualities to be successful, the first and foremost quality of a leader is to listen, the next comes convincing people. Staying updated on current outside world is what leader should possess and to achieve all these one has to be experienced.

But some of the ppl who evolve as leaders practice leadership the most. It does not matter whether we are having equal oppurtinities are not. Some prefer going through pain and some love comfort too much. It does not matter what kind of environment we are exposed to.

None of us are born with any skills or talents. We come in this world with no previous knowledge about life or wisdom about circumstances. Skills could be dancing, singing, painting are honed as we grow up. It depends on one's interests, surroundings, and resources that one is exposed to. Leadership is a skill which is developed over years of observation, experiences and learning. Believe me or not, there is a leader in each one of us. A business school doesn't teach us how to be a leader, it tells us how to find and expose the hidden leader in us.

Leadership is not something anybody is born with, it is just an amalgamation of the lessons learnt in life, taking the shape of a skill.

Hi, everyone, I am vaishali.

In my opinion, leaders are not born they made in business schools. The thinking that makes anyone leader is not inherited from your mother or father that is developed in the person by giving that mentality of thinking. The main qualities of leaders are who can support their employees, not getting annoyed easily, listen everyone's thinking, motivate their employees to do more better. All this quality is developed in the person by changing their thinking and made them think like that and high level of study made anyone a good leaders. So business schools provide that environment to the students to develop this type of quality in this way leaders are made.

I think that leadership qualities come from the actions that a person take depending upon different situations faced. Everybody has leadership quality, but it depends upon the person how he/she uses it in daily life.

For example there is always a friend who decides where to go for the trip or responsible for booking the cab at lowest price. Whenever a project is given a college, there is always a person who takes the responsibility of dividing the work.

So all these situations show that leadership quality cannot be developed by studying about it, but it is ongoing process and it can be developed by taking the responsibility.

The leadership quality also start with any incident happening in their life that is the turning point to become a leader for example: Babasaheb Ambedkar is untouchable person in his childhood that time society to see in this manner but "HE TOUGHING NO.

Hello friends, My name is Ranjan Raj and I am from IFEEL.

According to my thought leadership is an inborn quality. Everyone is born with this quality, but it depends on you when you realise this quality and when you show it. It can start with an incident or situation. I would like to give an example of a great leader and freedom fighter Mahatma Gandhi who is also known as the father of our nation. He realised this quality after an incident happened during a train journey where he was thrown out of the train and he was told that "You are a black person and you could not travel in first class". He saw a vision of independent India. He took initiatives, and came in the battleground of freedom.

Again, I would like to express my thought with the example of sword. A sword without its sharpness is not useful in battle it becomes an effective tools after going under process of sharpening, and it pays deep contribution in the victory. In the same way without sharpening this quality it is worthless, it can be sharpen by society, family, friends etc. And the education. B-schools only does a role of sharpening process.

Leadership is a rare quality which includes confidence in your actions as well as the knack for initiating any idea or a venture in this case. Leadership can be developed over a period of time even outside a business school.

Every situation has its own perspective. No business school can teach you how to tackle panicky situations. It is your own ability and instinct which makes you a good leader. You may be a born leader only if you have nurtured that quality in time.

To become a good Leader:

1. The individual should have strong desire to become a leader.

2. They should have mental ability and Physical capability to take right decisions at right time and to implement them accordingly.

3. The Leader should be aware about the past, should know about present and should be able to predict the future.

4. They should treat everyone equally without partiality.

In my opinion I would like to say that, Leadership quality cannot be decided at the time of birth but the work he does, how he utilizes the opportunity and works for the benefit for the others. Leader is not the one who gives the command or order but he takes everyone opinion and decides which is best.

Some will say that leaders are born but they don't know that their work and achievements are seen only when the time goes on. Each an every person are the leaders of their own life. Leaders must have the quality of communication skills, and others like mental ability and physical ability and education, straight forwardness etc.

I think no person is born with any inborn qualities like leadership. Rather they earn such qualities during their course of life. They learn leadership qualities from their families, their school etc. For e.g If a person is given right to take small decisions as a child itself, then he'll gain self confidence which is very important for leadership. In the school as well, if a child is a class monitor, then he starts acting like a leader. Actually, business schools can never make the leaders because a person's qualities are actually decided in his childhood itself.

There is no question that some people come into the world endowed with self-confidence and a keen intellect. That is clearly an advantage. But of the group, only a small number move on to remarkable achievements as leaders. The difference appears to be hard work, thoughtful and tenacious effort, zeal for learning, and willingness to extend beyond ones normal comfort zone. Some people start with clear advantages, but nearly all people are made better leaders from specific developmental activities.

Leaders are created by society and the success and failures in one's life make him think differently which helps him to shape his leadership skills making him successful. Example to this is Warren Buffett.

Hello everybody, I'm Barsha Guha, an engineering student from India.

I believe that leadership is an inborn quality. However, it must be nurtured through various stages in life.

Leadership is the ability to influence a group of people to achieve a common goal. A leader must have wisdom, values and good decision making ability which can only be gained through the experience one gains in various stages of life.

B-school education can nurture the leadership skills but cannot simply thrust the powers of leadership into someone who is not born with it. For example, not every B-school graduate is a great leader.

Again, there are people like Bill Gates. He was a school dropout. But he became one of the greatest leaders.

Hence, I conclude that leadership is an inborn skill, but, it must be polished through exposure for a leader to truly shine.

Developing some clarity about the "born-or-made?" debate is essential to a discussion of leadership training. The current consensus is that it is both.

Hi friends I am Irfan khan from Kashmir. Regarding this topic I feel that to become a good engineer one has to go through the engineering study or training and in order to become a good doctor, a person has to grind through MBBS course and then undergo internship, similarly, in order to become a good manager, an individual has to undergo management training programmes. Or else a technician can also become an engineer, a good compounder can also become a doctor. If we look at public sector, virtually everywhere the government is conducting management programmes for its employees. What is the need? All of them are qualified bankers or railway employees and definitely they have qualified the exam, but as the situation demands now, people have started a professional approach towards their job, which was earlier absent and hence the need for trained managers, So that they prove productive towards their organisation. Management is doing a work in much refined way within limited time period, so I think we do need to train managers. Thank you.

Every one in this world has an inherent quality of leadership.. but this can only be identified by interacting with society which includes our family, friends, etc.. and hence by identifying it someone opt for b-school's to upgrade this leadership quality.

also the leaders have some vision in mind with the cherry on the cake i.e. followers to lead and hence that leader would use its influential skills to convince its people to become follower.

also the leaders like civil activist Anna Hazare which is not a B-school pass out but than too he leaded a big number of people..

also adding to same point the worlds biggest innovator Late Mr. Steve Jobs, dropped out of college.... so he did not got to any B-school.... but than too proved to be one of the biggest leader in the world..

hence my stand would be that leaders are even born but are also made at B-school hence it is a biased stand from my side

People take birth with different interest and attitudes. It is fortunate for the people who take birth with leadership qualities but it is not necessary that they would perform well as it is all about courage, confidence, motivating skills and circumstances which an individual faces through his/her life. It is also a real fact that each man possess same things difference is just in way of thinking and interest. No doubt business schools try to emerge leadership qualities in a man to its best.

But it is all about the theoretical knowledge and some amount of practical experience which are imparted by the business schools. The real field is something different. A true leader is on who is dynamic, confident, positive and who doesn't moves back in any kind of situation. Being confident may be inborn but tackling the situation is to be learnt from the circumstances. Surely business schools produce big leaders but the basic nature of man never changes.

Through B-schools one can only improvise his knowledge and leadership qualities to deal with problems. It is not that a perfect leader is made by the B-schools. Leadership quality in a person is developed by his own experience in the society and his nature to deal with the things.

Leaders are not made in business schools. Leader would have punctuality, friendly nature, mingle nature, and good communication with others. These qualities are required for business schools. Leaders are not born. Leaders are created by themselves.

Leadership is in every individual, but the question is who realizes it at the deciding situation. Even a born leader can fail and a studied leader can fail. But the leader in yourself can never fail. Trust yourself and be LEADER.

Leadership is an art. It comes from the environment that we have on our surroundings. Every person contains leadership qualities, but lack of confidence levels at them they are always in a back. So leadership is an enthusiastic skill that depends on the persons ability and confident.

The way I see it is the leaders are born, its only that his qualities are hidden. Whatever these b schools does are mere refining their qualities. You cannot change a person who has never took an initiative in life. A leader always does that. Talking of b schools they already take the persons who have certain leadership qualities which they find through no. Of test and GDs they conduct. No school or b school can change a person into leader unless the person is born with it.

According to me leaders are not born, the situation, the environment he faced only make him a leader, the schools and education only improve the leadership quality. So only all companies who were recruiting peoples doesn't directly appointing them as a leader, they check whether they are suited for that task whether he can able to manage the situation and so.......

I feel that in this current scenario, Leader can be developed by allowing him/her to experience and take decisions. Apart from TATA, Birla and Ambani there are lot of companies that are being directed well by leaders. And those leaders are not born. There are thousands of companies that performed very well even in recession.

In my opinion, in current scenario, a leader is a person who give direction to all resources in a company in order to keep that company sustainable and to grow more and more.

So, Chanda kochhar from ICICI, Indira Nooi etc etc all are good professionals and leaders of today's business scenario.

If we talk in context of current global world then Leasers can be created and managers can be guided!!

From present scenario we can say leaders are made by the situations. It depend upon the place (enviornment) where they born.

In business schools we are getting opputunity to enhance our leadership qualities by creating hypothetical situations.

One of the greatest skill that God has given to every individual by Birth, its Leadership quality, it always teaches a great lesson about Human life. Every leader has to deal with problems and lead the people with insignficant potential and empower others to achieve their objectives. One day or other everyone will exhibts their Leadership skill when they face with obstalces.

Leadership quality is not inborn but is adapted by the individual as per the environment. It is due to the fact that which type of surrounding we have and which type of people we are interacting.. Leadership quality is enhanced due to the type of circumstances we have faced and its actually the criteria depends on how much we are able to handle the pressure.

So definitely all this should be learned by the situations in life not before life..

I agree that the leader we had in the past or present are not from any business schools but we must understand that the leadership quality they are having is the result of the situtation or circumstances faced by them. And the same thing is done by the business schools, they are giving the their students virtual situations to act so that the Leadership qulitiy or power a student (or anyone) is already having which is hidden inside can come out.

Everyone can't be a leader because everyone is not facing the same situations. The circumstances of everyone is different. For example carbon is same but from the same carbon we have two allortopes diamond and grahite. As diamond get strong pressure and heat it is diamond and if graphite also suffered that heat and pressure it could also be diamond.

A person come with all the positives and negatives with him, it is the circumstances which make the persons mind to respond. If he responded positively he can be diamond and if negativly a graphite.


There must be followers else who will value leaders.
Leaders are leaders because there are followers, if all will be leaders then we can't get the conclusion.

I do accept that leader are born,leader are the one who can win heart of human through doing social services or developing nation with their innovative thought,and their passion to do thing for benefit of all and not as an individual.

Example : Nelson mandela, Dirubhai Ambhani and Ghandhiji..

Business school are meant to gain knowledge,sharpen their skill to execute, youngster who are not exposed to practical scenario.
A person without passion to do is similar to dead body for business school.

In my point of view leader is nothing but he has to manage all those things what ever he want do that should be taken by him a challenge. He should talk loudly, innocently about the situation occur at any point of time. The leader has to think in a positive manner. Almost all this type of persons would came from childhood because they don't care any one. Some peoples only came from business schools from childhood they behave like leader at any point of time and they learnt so many things also by absorbing past and present situations in the country.

Leaders are born this can be supported by there fact that our great national leader Gandhi was a born leader he did not went for any business school. So leadership qualities are inborn business schools helps to refine and sharpen such skill. It's difficult for business schools to inculcate any leadership quality
