The most dangerous leadership myth is that leaders are born – that there is a genetic factor leadership. That’s nonsense; in fact, the opposite is true. Leaders are made rather than born. -Warren G. Bennis, American scholar and organizational consultant

Warren Bennis, an expert who advised presidents and business executives on successful leadership, shared an important point on how leaders are not born but made. This reality is crucial, especially at a time in which there is a lack of strong leadership.

The 2021 Global Leadership Forecast shows that only 11% of organizations say they have developed a strong leadership line-up. This lack of strong leadership is partially due to the absence of effective leadership development programs.

Organizations must hire and develop leaders who can motivate and improve a workforce’s culture, performance, and job satisfaction. Such leadership will ultimately increase engagement and, in turn, the retention rates of employees.

In our fourth “Leadership Table Talk,” our Founder, President & CEO, Andrew Sungsoo Kim, shares what qualities a leader should have, examples of strong leaders that he admires, how to assess leadership performance, and how his company develops leaders.
