I am not sure how I feel about this statement
Some people are made to be leaders and some people are born to be leaders
Leaders are neither made or born (explain)
Both. Someone can be taught to lead well, but there are some things that make a good leader that can't be taught. For example, being naturally very charismatic, having a commanding voice and presence, and other "intangibles." So I suppose the greatest leaders are born, but good leaders can be made.
It's a little bit of both. I'm a firm believer in developmental psychology, and that leaders are typically programmed by their parents or other significant influences in their youth. Not programmed to do a specific function, but programmed to have the willingness and open mind it takes to become a leader. The social understanding it requires in order to bring oneself to a position of power above others, the acceptance and respect of the concept of cynicism, self-appreciation and unwillingness to accept defeat are all ideologies which leaders share. Someone who is told that they could never be shit in life, will probably end up not being shit. The ideologies mentioned above are ascertained through believing in oneself. In addition to this, your environment or genetic disposition can have a positive or negative influence on whether or not a person holds these ideologies. Somebody who is born in a very negative environment with a very negative outlook on life, will most likely end up staying there. Somebody who is born to a wealthy family in a positive environment with many opportunities at their disposal, as a far better chance at being a leader. People who have exceedingly high IQ's usually end up being consumed in analytics (cue the "160 IQ child prodigy" who ends up working a government desk job), people who have exceedingly low IQ's usually end up not being able to analyze enough to vet great success. Naturally, people who are more inclined to be narcissistic tend to find it easier to succeed versus people who are compassionate. There are many many factors to consider what it takes to become a leader. I think the most important, though, would be self-perception. If you don't believe in yourself, you won't be leading anyone. This, as explained above, can be a result of the nature of your birth, or how you were raised.
Both happen. You can be a natural born leader or you can be shaped to lead when growing up.
I think for the most part, leaders are born. However, I think that a minority can be made into leaders. I could go on but no; it's Offtopic.
Made meaning it takes ingredients. Cakes don't just come out of the oven ready to go, it takes work to get them to that point. Also an attribute more important than charisma is sympathy. (Charisma is handy but not needed once leadership is obtained) Being able to see the perspectives of others gives you more insight, and wisdom while also granting you the ability to gauge the wants, and needs of others.
Leaders need to have certain charisma. You can make and fake that but most the time you'd need to be born with it.
The right person at the right time.
Leaders, as in those of great renown or infamy, like Mannerheim, Rommel, Patton, Eisenhower, etc., are born. There's only so much that you can teach a person about being a leader.
This is kind of true. Most of the time, leaders are very charismatic, persuasive, strong, and smart. These can get passed on from parents to children. On the other hand, people like Adolf Hitler, who was beta as -blam!- yet came to power and almost won WW2, can be very surprisingly strong leaders.
