It is never all of one and none of another, but a balance. Great leaders carry a charisma, for instance, some of it inborn, some of it through the development of skills that bring with them confidence. That charisma encompasses more than sheer charisma. It is the magic that induces the people to follow when it doesn’t make logical sense to do so. It motivate the groups of followers to weather storms, fight uphill battles, stretch their own limits beyond what was once thought possible, and live on long after the leader is gone.
