Why the Accepted Premise That Anyone Can Be a Leader Is Utterly False and the Main Cause of Poor Leadership in America
by Paul Okum
Not many people are satisfied with the leaders we have in the public and private sectors. We are suffering from a severe lack of good leadership—even though billions of dollars per year are spent on leadership training and development.
The root cause of this leadership vacuum is that leadership gurus firmly believe, teach, and preach that anyone can be “made” into a leader with the right training, personal desire, and commitment. With this premise, they’ve approached leadership as a commonplace and elementary skill that anyone can learn. There’s just one problem: they’re wrong.
In this guidebook on leadership, you’ll learn about all aspects of leadership, including:
how to look past personality profiles, leadership models, and traditional assessment tools to grasp what makes a great leader;
how to identify and select natural born leaders to achieve your objectives;
how to deal with poor leaders who hurt you and your organization.
Leadership DNA examines the false premise that anyone can be a leader and provides insights and tools that lead to a better system of identifying, selecting, and developing born leaders.
