Leadership Minute: You Don’t Need a Title

servant_leadership_metaphor

Brian Tracy said, “Become the kind of leader that people would follow voluntarily; even if you had no title or position.” One of the greatest misconceptions about leadership is that it’s your position or title that makes you a leader. You become the kind of leader that others want to follow not because of your position but because of your passion. Others follow you not because of your title but because of your example. You are followed not because you are selfish but because you are a servant. At the end of the day people voluntarily follow you as a leader not out of coercion but because you touched their heart- and you don’t need a title to do that.
