Management is a title. There’s a list of tasks that go along with a manager role. But not all managers are leaders. And there are some leaders that aren’t managers. Leadership is not a title; it’s a responsibility.
You can lead people, processes, or projects. Even if you don’t have the title, stretch your leadership skills. What do you want or expect from your leaders? How can you provide those expectations to your teams and projects? How can you be the person that the team looks to for guidance, decision-making, and organization? There are many ways to provide value and leadership to teams. Find your space and make it so!
