“You can lead even if you are not the leader.” – Erin Stellato
I heard this quote from a friend recently on a panel. It’s interesting in that it does help to inspire you to think about how you can make a difference even if you aren’t in charge.
The thing is, if you lead, you’re a leader. There isn’t a leader. There are people in charge, and people who lead. They can be the same, but they can be different.
Leadership is valuable, even when you aren’t in charge. When you aren’t the manager, or organizer, or Scoutmaster, or deacon, or any other “position” that determines direction, you can still lead.
That’s what leadership is. You convince people to do something when you have no power.
