Leaders are Made Not Born: 40 Simple Skills to Make You the Leader You Want to Be by Michael J. Farlow is a self-help book that will help with sharpening your leadership skills and giving you a confidence boost. The author believes that everyone can be a leader in their own field and in any way they want to be. This is a very practical book that doesn’t just share ideas, but actually shares skills and practices that can help you become the leader that you desire to be. The author believes that you just need to have the determination, the motivation and the desire to become a leader and that is enough reason for you to work a little extra hard to get the results you want.
While the commitment of the reader is very important, the author also puts a lot of emphasis on educating yourself before taking a step further. This, in my eyes, is a very important and encouraging step, as education and learning something has a greater impact than just following a set of tips. He shares 40 skills that a leader should have and he details every skill so that it becomes easy to understand and adopt. The skills he mentions are skills that we all have; it is just a matter of honing them and making them better. What I really liked the most about this book is the expert advice given to the reader in the simplest of words so that anyone and everyone can understand it and implement it. The author gives sound and practical advice that is great for people of all genders and ages.
