I hate it when people think just because they have a fancy job title that it qualifies them automatically as a leader. We don’t see this issue too much with small businesses, but more with your big brand businesses. So what if you’re the CEO, President, Director of whatever – if you don’t have what people gravitate towards, then you really have no power with the company you are supposed to be in charge of. We see more people flock to those that are the true leaders of a company because they possess the knowledge, right character and the simple fact that they care about people without having the big fancy title. This makes them the authority figure that is going to make the big boss sweat. Big brands need to take another lesson from the small business owners on this one. If you truly want to be the go to person in your company here are a few things you will need to know.
Question Of The Day:

Jason,

This is the HUGE difference between leadership and management, something I learned the hard way (long story) in my own career. I also suspect it's the reason lots of small business owners you meet, especially the really successful and visionary ones, don't worry too much about titles.
