It takes a lot and a little more to become a successful leader.

Your personal qualities are only the starting point. As much as you need to be on top of your subject, you also require soft skills. Besides this, a leader must also be a ‘dealer in hope’ (in the famous words of Napolean Bonaparte).

All of these put together play a huge role in the development of your leadership skills. 

The good news is that no one is a born leader. Leadership skills can be learned over time with some patience and practice.
