Thomas J. Watson as always comes up with a great one liner. So what does he mean?
Its obvious that you need to be passionate about what you do to be successful in your endeavors, but it appears he is also talking about the famous Shakespearean “nature” vs “nurture” dogma here also. Are successful entrepreneurs born and not made? In that case, a lot of B-School education would fall flat on its face. Is this quote indicating that formal training provides one only a platform to move on in business?
Another great quote flashes to the mind: “Great leaders are born and not made”.
By the way, do check out Cornerstone LMS. They offer great learning solutions.
Any suggestions on these viewpoints on success of entrepreneurs and leadership?
