Superior leadership produces higher return than superior talent
Forbes
Talent is something you're born with. Furthermore, it is hard to make dramatic changes to talent in the short run. There is an immutable law of statistics that states there are only 10 percent of the people in a population who are in the top 10 percent.

6 steps that help generate leaders from followers
Great Leadership by Dan

It is easy to stand back and give orders and assume all knowledge resides with top management of the organization. Working in this manner fails to utilize the skills and knowledge of the workforce, diminishes their critical-thinking skills and stifles their creativity.
