    Is leadership a learned art or is it in the genes?

    Which side of the argument do you fall on...are good leaders born or does the education process create them?

    Both. Some people have a natural talent for leading others, others can become good leaders through practice, education and observation. Even "born leaders" can better their leadership by doing the same.

    I think that for the most part it is in the genes. but with great earnest I am sure it can be learned.

    It's either or, or both.  Being a good leader is about the person doing the leading, whether that's a divine gift or learned attribute.

    Well, its definitely something that grows slowly with time. Never miss an opportunity where you'll get to learn something. It's about the values that you develop within yourself with the span of time and that will always assist you facing the challenges outside.
