Leaders are born, not made; or is it leaders are made not born. Either way, without effective leadership, a martial arts school will fail. Good instructors are leaders, but they are not necessarily effective leaders. Effective leadership may be learned two ways, from experience or from training. Experience is hard way to learn, it requires you to try something to see if it works, and it may not work and your business may fail. Training allows you to learn from the experiences and failures of others so you will not make the same mistakes. However, training does not necessarily mean you will be an effective leader, some people are not meant to be leaders, while others have people flocking to them wanting to be led by them.
