Holding a Leader Title, but Not Really a Leader

If someone is called “leader”, but…

  • Always has to know everything.
  • Always has to have the final word.
  • Always has to be coddled by others.
  • Never empowers others.
  • Never takes ownership for a mistake.
  • Never takes a risk.
  • Never shares the “rewards” with others.

Then he or she is not a leader…

  • May have a title.
  • May be the boss.
  • May have power.
  • May draw a larger paycheck.

But they are not really a leader.

In fact, in my opinion, he or she may even need to get out of the way and let someone lead.

Have you known people with the title of leader who weren’t really a leader?
