A promotion doesn't make you a leader
A promotion is one form of recognition, but it does not inherently make you a leader. Neither does being a manager. Or coming in early, getting facetime with the C-suite, crushing your KPIs, or having “lead” in your title.
Many “leads” do not lead and many people without the title do. While promotional milestones can signify leadership, they don’t by default.
Interested in leadership and management. Avid reader.
