Leadership is a skill and therefore can be learned. This deflates the myth that people are either born leaders or not. Similar to leadership style, individuals can acquire professional coping mechanisms to advance (or damage) how they manage and lead others.

There has been greater awareness of solution focus brief therapy (SFBT) since its inception in 1982. It is common for SFBT to be included in survey courses in both undergraduate and graduate social work programs.
