Authentic leadership is critical to spearheading the advancement of young surgeons in their developmental stages as they acquire the skill sets necessary to lead successful careers in surgery. It is predicated on the understanding of the aptitudes, learned skills, dedication, patience, agreeableness, and nurturing of one's cognitive and emotional intelligence. Resilience and humility are a few of the attributes required to master for those who hope to become leaders and mentors within surgery. Perspectives on learning and leadership from the young trainee to the seasoned surgeon, both of which are considered students of surgery, are presented here. Traits of great leaders are discussed in the hope of creating a culture that fosters the development of surgical mentors in the next generations to come. The following core competencies are addressed in this article: Interpersonal skills and communication, Professionalism, Systems based practice.
