Jody Victor® found an article: Leadership – Why Talent Is Overrated

Jody found this article on with a provocative title: Leadership – Why Talent is Overrated by Mike Myatt.
His point is that “… most foundational elements of leadership require no skill or talent whatsoever.” He goes on to say they hone whatever skills they have and don’t see leadership as a destination but rather a continuum. He goes on to say “The best leaders combine attitude, effort and skill, but of the three, skill is the least important.”

He goes on to list 6 characteristics that require no talent or skill to be a leader.

Jody hopes you will take the time to read the article.
