What defines a leader in today's industry? According to www.vocabulary.com, a good leader is the one in charge. However, is there lunch thing as a born leader? Well, according to the Association Society of Association Executives (ASAE), leadership is an acquired attribute that begins early in school and on the playground. Some children develop a take-charge attitude, some make friends fast, while others are happy just to make the team. Over time, education, jobs, and life experiences shape a leader's philosophy and psychology. Additionally, over the course of time, a leader may find that his/her winning formula is no longer producing results. New challenges require new leadership skills, behaviors, and ways of communicating.
