Chatterbox #188 – Leadership

In this episode, Andrew and Morag tackle a difficult but interesting topic: leadership. What makes a good leader? How can you describe a good leader using idiomatic English? Join us in this Chatterbox episode to learn some of the answers to these questions!

Fun facts

When talking about leadership, you’re likely to hear someone say, “Good leaders are made, not born.” While this sounds like an expression, it’s actually a quote from Vince Lombardi, a famous American football coach from the mid-20th century. What do you think? Is good leadership a quality that people are born with, or one that must be learned?

Expressions you’ll learn in this episode:

  • A trend
  • To crack the whip
  • Way back
  • Herd mentality
  • It factor
