If a person is given a title in the company, it means they hold a certain rank. VP's, C-level means they have a high rank.
But the title doesn't make someone a leader.
Leading, however, means that others willingly follow you – not because they have to, not because they are paid to, but because they WANT to.
Leadership can't be given through a title. It must be earned.
You can have a title, yet not be a leader.
And you can have a lower title, but become an incredibly impactful leader.
Choose to lead.
