I was watching my two daughters at gym club today and one of the activities involved gently jogging around. My youngest was at the front and continually looked behind her checking for her sister. I turned to my wife and posed the question that our youngest was perhaps not a leader! Her response was that according to her pre-school leader, she was most definitely a leader. It got me thinking about the old question of nature or nurture and group dynamics and whether leaders are born or created. Personally I am absolutely in the space of nurture and the impact on us of our environment. I do however feel a strong sense that nature prepares us.
