Leadership as a Science

  • Myth #1: Leaders are born, not made.

    Truth: Innate factors interact with experience

  • Myth #2: Good leadership is all common sense.

    Truth: What seems obvious after you know the results and what you would’ve predicted are not the same thing. Hindsight is always 20/20

  • Myth #3: The only school you learn leadership from is the School of Hard Knocks.

    Truth: Formal study provides a variety of ways of examining a leadership situation. Examining leadership from multiple perspectives is a skill in becoming a better leader
