One of the biggest themes explored him Barry-O’s book is the importance of leadership, and Barack revealed to viewers that anyone can be a leader, only if they are willing to do the work first.

“One mistake I think a lot of people make is that you’re just either born a leader or you’re not. When, in fact, leadership is, like anything else, it’s a skill,” shared the 44th President. “And there are a bunch of different ways to do it. I’ve known people who were great leaders but really soft-spoken and weren’t always trying to seek attention.”

He continued, “The thing I try to communicate in the book and I learned this, I wasn’t always perfect at it…number one was realizing that the most important thing a leader does is they set a tone in terms of culture as a team. Whether the team is a basketball team or a business or an administration. What are the values in which you are organizing yourselves?….Being clear about what your values are as an organization, that’s part of leadership.”
