This is an age-old question that's been the subject of countless books, articles, and debates. Heck, I even started a "leadership readiness group" at a company I worked at, hoping I could mold future leaders earlier in their career. And, I have seen umpteen number of "Leadership Development" efforts at companies that have not produced the leaders they hoped for (they have produced managers).
And, the question remains - are leaders born, or are they made?
Leaders emerge. They are born out of circumstances, enlightenment, purpose, drive, ambition, etc. More importantly, born out of their own passion or drive, and not because they attended a one-week seminar on how to be a great leader, or read a self-improvement book. Nor, are they created because they were thrown into a scenario. And, they are definitely not born with special genes.
The easiest comparison I can think of is charity. One can't make someone to be charitable, that drive has to come from within, and for the greater good.
To be a leader, you need to be self-aware of your leadership abilities. Not simply the confidence, but the belief in the common goal you are taking your team to. And that can happen only out of one's own volition, passion, self-awareness, and enlightenment.
And, for this to happen, you need leaders to have a purpose that came about on its own, and not artificially created.
The important thing to understand is leadership is a trait, and not a skill.
This leads to an interesting question - how do companies then "build" leaders? While leadership should still come from within an individual, you can increase the probability of successful leaders emerging in your workplace by a few simple things.

think it is really not an either/or situation - u have to be born with some traits and u have to learn others ,so it is ((born and made)), not born or made.
Then, u always have some situations where someone raised the right way, takes up the leadership position in a time of stress, because SOMEONE has to do it.
i know at my suggestion u partially agree with me not fully.
Very good article . good sharing
Awesome sharing Abdul
Leaders are born and they make their way from the start.
Leaders can also be made but take care they should be ordered from china!!!
anyways leaders can be developed are groomed as well but definetly they are less effective than the natural leaders...
It is a debateable topic specially difference between managers and leaders:
teeko ban ja
sab say aagay ja kar kharay ho jao stage par teeko ... phir bnatay hain apko leader
