True Leaders strive to be the best version of themselves regardless of rank/titles, or if anyone is even watching. Leaders genuinely want to help others around them and make their team better regardless of recognition or praise. In my opinion, true Leaders are servants by nature, and by their nature, they are trusted because of the way they treat people. Most servant leaders will be promoted and achieve formal leadership roles, but they define the roles they lead from, not the other way around. To answer the original question, no you do not have to hold a title to be a leader.
