I do think you are born with leadership ability, but that doesn’t mean you can’t learn different/better ways to use your God-given talent. Almost every situation requires a different leader, or at least an agile leader who can recognize the best way to lead.
The most meaningful book I’ve read on leadership is The Contrarian’s Guide to Leadership by Steven Sample. He talks a lot about “thinking gray.” I use that term all the time now, and I think that’s key to success, not only in leadership but in life.
Sounds like Michael Denisoff was interesting! Very neat stats
