Not at all. As a leader I understand there will be certain situations where I need to defer to a SME for him/her to take the lead in order for the objective to be successfully met. It is our job as leaders to recognize these informal leaders and not let pride get in the way when the time comes to defer to them, even though they don’t have the title.
