Three Leadership Myths Rarely Discussed…If at All

Covey quote: Leadership is the highest of the arts, simply because it enables all the other arts and professions to work.

You’ve seen the articles about leadership myths, but most seem well-known including:

  • Leaders are born, not made
  • Leaders need to be extroverts / charismatic / popular / outgoing
  • You need an authoritative role to lead (such as being a manager or executive)
  • Leaders are always right
