Titles in an organization are positive in the sense that they create structure, maintain order and vision; however, for an organization to thrive in the business world today, each one needs to assume a leadership position in their own roles.
Doing your best at work is what matters – the action of being the best, being creative, inspiring others, stretching your thinking and solving problems is better than the title itself.
In today’s changing world, growing and developing the talents of every single person throughout an organization is what makes the company and the people themselves successful – building leaders regardless of titles.
To be successful everyone must see themselves as part of the leadership of the organization – you don’t need formal authority to lead, only a strong desire to be involved and a strong commitment to make a positive difference. Be truly excellent in your current role – no role is a small role; every job is an important job.
We all possess an inner leadership regardless of title. We just need to become aware of it and then really own it.
Leadership has nothing to do with what you get or where you sit; leadership is more about how brilliantly you work and how masterfully you behave. It’s all about doing great work and about lifting up every single one of the people you work with and get to serve.
You don’t have to have a title to be a leader just be the best you can be – once you do, life will definitively reward you, not only on a business level but also on a personal level.
