Titles mean something: Team Leader, Manager, Supervisor, CEO – they are all titles bestowed on those who are called by an organisation to lead. They have the official duties and responsibilities that go with the title.
John Maxwell says leadership is influence. If that is true, are the people with the titles the only ones called to lead? No. The title gives them some positional authority, but leaders are needed at every level of an organisation.
Those without positional authority can and should lead. A team with leaders at every level will beat any team with leadership centralised at the top.
We all have the ability to influence others no matter our title. Leading without a title is the purest form of leadership. It might not always be easy, but it is necessary.
Some people want to lead, but frustration sets in because they feel their title does not allow them to lead. A title is only as good as the leader who holds it.
Titles don’t make a leader, influence does. We all have opportunities to influence others. Therefore, we are all called to lead.
Lead where you are. The cream will rise to the top. Leaders may not get a new job title, but they will rise in influence. (Dave Anderson).
