ABSTRACT
A joint interview with leadership development experts including Lynn Perry Wooten, Robert Quinn and Scott DeRue is presented. When asked if leadership can be taught, Wooten says yes, as it is a continuous process while DeRue says it is a practice that can be learned through experience. On bringing out the right leadership qualities in people, Quinn says people resist it so they give developmental experiences while Wooten says they assess and create opportunities for leadership development. Wooten adds that effective leaders can lead under pressure.
