Are Leaders Born or Made?

The debate about whether leaders are born or made has been around forever. Most experienced organizational leaders agree that it’s some of each.

One person may have strong analytical skills, another may be a better listener. MindHandle executive development helps leaders fine tune their strengths and develop proficiencies in areas that need further development.

Some personality traits are inborn, such as positive energy, passion, and the ability to move others to action. Making difficult decisions and communicating them well are mostly acquired skills.

Anecdote vs. Story. What's the Difference?

While storytelling is MindHandle’s gift to the world, we're aware it's also somewhat of a buzzword in marketing, as the entire org chart learns to embrace humankind's most enduring form of communications.

We witness and contribute to thousands of versions of stories generated and shared every year, and we're privy to many anecdotes as well. An anecdote can be an incredibly useful tool, but marketers must be aware of the differences between them and when to employ one or the other.

"We're on the same page."

"Are you riding this wavelength?"

"Now you're speaking my language."

"I'm smellin' what you're steppin' in." However you say it (and there are infinitely more ways), there's something magical about that feeling when you realize you and another person are aligned in your thoughts. Especially if that other person can affect your ideas' chances to succeed.
