Leadership Is Not A Title!

Leadership is Not A Title
What do you want your legacy to be? Why do you lead in the first place? Do you want your people to succeed more than you want to succeed?   Do you want your customers to succeed more than you want yourself to succeed?  

Leadership is about genuine service to others. Leaders love. This doesn't mean that you don't possess a constitution. This doesn't mean that you don't have a backbone. Truthfully, leaders don't need a formal title to lead. Management guru Peter Drucker put it this way, “All the effective leaders I have encountered — both those I worked with and those I merely watched — knew four simple things: a leader is someone who has followers; popularity is not leadership, results are; leaders are highly visible, they set examples; leadership is not rank, privilege, titles or money, it is responsibility.” If you're a leader with a fancy title ask: if I didn't have this title would people still follow me? If not, do some soul searching and become the person others would desire to follow. If you are waiting for someone, some organization to tap you on the proverbial shoulder to lead; stop waiting and just do it! Remember, Leader is not a title that the world gives to you. It's an offering that you give to the world!
