I was watching my two daughters at gym club today and one of the activities involved gently jogging around. My youngest was at the front and continually looked behind her checking for her sister. I turned to my wife and posed the question that our youngest was perhaps not a leader! Her response was that according to her pre-school leader, she was most definitely a leader. It got me thinking about the old question of nature or nurture and group dynamics and whether leaders are born or created. Personally I am absolutely in the space of nurture and the impact on us of our environment. I do however feel a strong sense that nature prepares us.
Leaders are they born that way?

I have been around a while and seen some stuff for sure. I have experienced some good bad, indifferent and some downright fabulous. I am still hugely motivated to get up every day and be curious. I love tech and business and most of all dogs oh and people ;-) Having been in sales most of my working life I have a real interest in the art and science and am a committed lifelong learner - constantly frustrating my kids with my stock phrase "every day is a school day" Personally, I’m a husband to one, and father to five amazing children (three of them are no longer children, but independent adults) and my golden lab – Archie, who is always pleased to see me. I was blessed with becoming a Granddad in February 2021 (a very proud and somewhat besotted one) and another grandson arrived in October 2022 to keep their parents busy and for me to spoil. I am also a mad keen lover of the oval ball game and a lifelong supporter of Leicester Tigers. As an Englishman, that's therefore England at a national level and the British and Irish Lions. If I can be of service in any way including any area of developing a channel sales and support business or ecosystem partnerships, and or sales coaching or development, you can find me at the link below, and contact me via the form also. One of my favourite "quotes" is Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well-preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, with a beer in one hand, shouting "Whoo, what a ride!!" Views here are 100% my own. https://grahambunting.com/findme/ View all posts by Graham Bunting
