Update Lead Owner When Custom Picklist field on Lead is Updated

Hello Admins and Develpers,
I have a task where the Lead Owner field should be updated when Account Owner field on Lead is updated. This field contains names of users. When a user is selected from Account owner picklist, the lead owner should change to that user. I do have a trigger but I wanna try this out without a peice of code. Can anyone help me with developing workflow rules or process builder in order to achieve this.

I think you need to create this process builder since it cntains multiple if and else statements. Workflow wouldn't be a great solution for this. Your if and else statements depends on however many list of AccountOwners you have.

Create a process builder which says whenever AccountOwner is changed update the LeadOwner field based on following,
If TEXT(AccountOwner) is equals to "John Doe" then LeadOwner is User.Id -- This will be John Doe's UserId
If TEXT(AccountOwner) is equals to "Mark Smith" then LeadOwner is User.Id -- This will be Mark Smith's UserId
