What makes a great leader?

I asked, “Are we all capable of being leaders?”

She said, “… From what I’ve experienced, I’d have to say, ‘yes and no’ … ‘Yes’ because we definitely have the potential to be good leaders, all of us, no matter where we’re born or who our families are … or our circumstances are … we have that ability … and when I say ‘leaders’ … it has nothing to do with positions (within organizations) … or our titles … or where we are in our lives … I also say, ‘no’ because not all people have this drive to be who they exactly are and using their potential … when you have so many self-limiting beliefs that make you feel, ‘not worthy, not deserving’ … that hinders you from being the type of leader you can be …”

Do you consider yourself a leader? If so, why?
