Are leaders born or made?

They say that there are three types of leaders: ‘some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.’  Of course this can be debated till the end of time, as each person will claim one side, however, it is actually a combination of all three. Not everyone is born with the capacity to make decisions or take on a leadership position, but even those that are do, still need to work hard to achieve greatness. Greatness or leadership is not just given to them, they must prove themselves capable; and even if greatness is thrust upon them, it does not guarantee that they will rise to the occasion and become great leaders if they don’t have the required qualities. So it is the right combination of all three that makes a great leader.
