You don’t have to hold a position in order to be a leader. – Henry Ford
Positions and titles allow you to create and enforce rules within an established structure or ecosystem, but they arguably do not establish you as a leader for the long-term. One of the best definitions of leadership I have seen is that leadership is the art of motivating a group of people to act towards achieving a common goal.
Lead now! If you see a need that resonates with your passion and purpose, don’t wait to be exalted into a position. Take the opportunity to frame the vision, create common goals and motivate people to action.
