1) By Wednesday of this week, in  at least 500 words for your initial post, share your thoughts on the message from Dr. Steinberg combined with the following based your own knowledge and experience:

Think about and compare two people you know.  Each one of these two individuals has what you might suspect is a genetic propensity for being a leader.  In other words, you have seen evidence that both of these acquaintances of yours were born with leadership ability.  However, one of your acquaintances has become a leader and the other has not.  What can you identify as the difference, today, between these two personalities?  First share why you think both of them have a genetic temperament to be a leader and then why you think one became a leader and the other did not. What main cause do you believe is the reason that one of them is a leader and the other is not?  Remember to take into account what Dr. Steinberg told us.
