People in all Positions Can and Should Be Leaders
People should lead in all positions because if leaders are scattered
throughout an organization they can take some of the stress and
responsibilities off of supervisors and managers (Zeiger, 2016). Employees
should lead in all position because there is no one position that can
magically transform someone into a leader (Zeiger, 2016). Because someone
can’t just be transformed into a leader by attaining a new position it is
important to practice leadership at all levels so that those who aren’t good
at it can prepare themselves for more difficult leader positions tomorrow.
Leaders can inspire and grow those that follow them within an organization which can in turn will create more future leaders and further the organization as a whole (Barrett, 2013).

CASE: Allpeople in all positions can and should be leaders
People can and should be leaders not matter in what position they are, some people are good at having patience, some other people are good with computers, others are good analyzing situations or finding solutions no matter what position they are in a company, they must be good at something. John says: “Leading up requires two things: influence and action. Influence is necessary to open doors so you can be heard, actions are necessary to implement your plan”. (Baldoni, 2009)
Being a leader starts by recognizing what you are good at, once you find out what it is, then it is necessary for the person to demonstrate what is he or she good at. John tell us that: “If I had to identify the No. 1 misconception people have about leadership, it would be the belief that leadership comes from having a position or title. This position myth, that you can’t lead if you’re not at the top, couldn’t be further than the truth. The erroneous thinking of this myth is that leadership is position, not influence.” (Maxwell, 2013)
