Guest Post: Take The Lead – No More Excuses By Katie Ross

leadership development and life in the yellowhammer state

guest

Many young professionals are gunning for a management position. I’m sure you can think of at least one person right now who falls into that category.  This person wants the opportunity to put Maxwell’s leadership theories to work, or to use Patrick Lencioni’s theories on building and leading teams. You can use these theories now in your current position, I promise. This desire for a management position can come from the thought that you can only make change if you’re in a position that has you “managing” people. A true leader should lead from whatever position they have. There isn’t some unspoken rule within leadership that says you have to be a manager to be a leader.  I think the person who doesn’t hold a management position and can still lead people is even more fit to be a leader.  It speaks volumes about a person’s character when people choose to be lead by someone who is leading from their non-management position.
