We have legal power/Authority, Absolute Power, We have Charisma, etc. Some people like Socrates could influence people through speech. These are just some of those who are born with the gift.

  1. Leaders are born. Period. Yes, sounds hard to swallow but that’s just the truth. Those who become leaders are born with such a fate. Becoming a leader is not something you become just because ‘you want to’.
