How to tell if you're a natural-born leader

Most leaders enter the corporate world with no idea on how to manage people. 

The process of gaining the trust of a workforce, mastering the art of persuasion or being able to make rousing public speeches comes from hours of trial and error and some harsh leadership lessons along the way. And whilst it may feel like you’re struggling or not worthy of a leadership status, the truth is that just like being a parent, there isn’t a magical rulebook that holds all of the answers. The process might be emotionally draining and involve a lot of second-guessing, but these things are simply rites of passage if you intend to lead well.

    I agree with this article 100%. Being genuinely approachable when you are extremely busy is a skill that very few people are able to master. It means putting other people first and accepting that the short term impact on your day may be negative, but you are positively impacting others.
    And being able to accept responsibility and be solutions orientated when things go wrong not only makes you a better manager, but it is also more productive for the business in the long run.
