Why You're Not A Leader
Everybody thinks they're a leader—most are far from it. The harsh reality is that we live in a world awash with wannabe leaders. As much as some don't want to admit it, not everyone can or should become a leader. Simply desiring to be a leader doesn't mean a person has the character, skill, and courage necessary to be a leader.
If you think you're a leader, but haven't been recognized as such, you have a problem. Either you're incorrect in your self-assessment, or those you report to don't recognize your talent.
