From the Paper:

"There is a constant debate: "Are leaders born or are leader made?" Leadership skills can be developed the qualities required in a leader can be learned. Bernard M. Bass states "Leadership is one of the world's oldest preoccupations." (Wren, 1995) When individuals know and understand both their strengths and their weakness, their effectiveness as leaders is greater. The leadership quality most desired is the ability to have a vision and a dream. No leader will have followers if the followers do not believe in the leader's mission. Strong leaders have a helpful and thoughtful personality. They are also very aware of their own strengths and weakness. The key to success in a career, and consequently in life, is to set attainable goals and work towards attaining these goals. Disciple and dedication is a necessity. A good leader knows how to generate enthusiasm and positive thinking within him or her self and how to broadcast it."
