Leadership comes in many shapes, sizes, and forms. A title doesn’t make one a leader. The officer at a department that is always early, works hard, and conducts himself above his peers is a leader. A leader is an individual that sets the example for others to follow. Having a title doesn’t make one a leader put demonstrating leadership every day regardless of your title makes you a leader.
