Definitely not. In fact, demonstrating leadership prior to promotion should be a pre-requisite for a Leadership Position. When reviewing applicants, I am always searching for evidence of ownership, coaching, and responsibility. You don’t magically gain leadership skills via promotion, so look for those who are already doing the work without the pay increase.
