There are often times that some of the most effective leaders that we come into contact with do not hold a specific title that gives them the position of a formal leader. I know from my own experience I have learned more from peers who demonstrated strong leadership traits than those in a formal position. Title gives you power over someone where there they are forced to do what you say where as a person in a leadership position who is being a leader will get you to want to do something.
