The victories of the Skilful Warrior are not extraordinary victories; they bring neither fame for wisdom nor merit for valour. Whether we like it or not, we’re born into a world where climbing the ranks in business ultimately becomes our top priority—especially earlier on in our careers. We compete to get into the best universities, and we clamor for open positions at the top firms. For those of us looking to jumpstart career growth, there’s a lot of advice out there on who to talk to, what industries to join, and how to stand out, but a lot less information on what makes up a great leader, on a scientific level.

It’s seems odd that our genetic code could decide if we’re built to lead in the workplace or if we’re meant to follow. The study focused on the dopamine transporter gene DAT1, which according to new research, controls the reward and motivation systems in our brains. In other words, this study suggests that those who dare to take risks—not because they’re bold by choice, but because they’re hardwired to think differently—are the people who are best equipped to lead. The study does come with one caveat—these same people who dare to take risks are also the worst at making positive change happen.
Work environment often sets young professionals up for success, even if they’re born with the golden gene variant or not.

While we can take time management and leadership courses through work and at school, there’s a lot our body needs to function properly, that we can’t learn from a book or in a classroom. A new study from the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences recently tied diet, exercise, and emotional intelligence together for the first time. And the study goes on to say that eating healthy and exercising regularly are two proven methods for developing and flexing emotional intelligence muscles. Some of us are born leaders while others have to work hard to develop the skills necessary for success.
