Question Do you require a title to lead ?.I sat on a panel yesterday at Univ of Maryland that discussed leadership. There are three types of leaders: Inspirational, Operational and Influential. Influential leadership, however, can sometimes be the most powerful of the three leadership forms. It’s not necessarily bound by vertical silos or chains of command. And it does not require a title in order to lead. It’s the ability to lead within your organization or classroom or sport through thoughtfulness and example.
