Being a manager doesn't make you a leader and you can lead without being a manager. According to Cleve Stevens, leadership is a state of mind, not a title to be handed out. Transformational leadership especially, is about engaging employees and motivating them beyond picking up the next paycheck and igniting their passion, loyalty, and motivation. This kind of leadership isn't easy, it requires change on all levels, at home and in the workplace, but the companies who are bold enough to make these changes see great results.
