The most important thing I've learned about leadership is that you don't need permission to lead.
In my career, I live by and teach this Five Step Plan. It applies to just about everyone and everything:
1. Go, make something happen.
2. Do work you're proud of.
3. Treat people with respect.
4. Make big promises and keep them.
5. Ship it out the door.
When in doubt, see #1.
Not that you needed it, but I give you permission to lead.
I think and write about leadership.
