Native speaker’s answer

To "make or break it" basically means to succeed or fail at something, so "make or break you as a leader here" means "to succeed or fail as a leader". Ex: Height won't make or break you as an athlete, but it can definitely be helpful. Ex: For children, having a healthy family environment can make or break you when they become adults.
