Leaders are made not born: Behavioral Theories believe that people can become leaders through the process of teaching, learning and observation. Leadership is a set of skills that can be learned by training, perception, practice and experience over time.
Similarly, you may ask, can leadership skills be developed?
But after a certain point, career development depends on more than technical skills and a willingness to work hard. You also need a few soft skills, not the least of which is the ability to take on a leadership role. Some people are natural leaders, but anyone can develop the skill set needed with some practice.
Can leadership be learned?
It's not just the information, but it's also the doing that develops skills—and being a leader demands a specific skill set, just as being a chef does. That's why I believe leadership can't be taught, but it can be learned. And learning leadership is akin to learning any other skill.
