Describing leadership is not an easy task, and definitions can vary depending on who we ask. Is leadership a quality, an attribute, an attitude, a job title? A lot of the trouble we face in finding the best definition for leadership comes from an important confusion we tend to make. It’s essential to distinguish between holding a leadership position and demonstrating leadership skills.
Organizations assign leadership positions to selected individuals: this means that they receive a mandate from the company to lead others, and are recognized as such. Only a small percentage of employees can hold a leadership position, and they are usually the top executives of their organization.
However, any employee can demonstrate leadership skills, regardless of seniority, job title, place in the hierarchy or even management experience.
