Become the kind of leader that people would follow voluntarily even if you had no title or position.

It is not a title or having an estimated position that make you a trustworthy leader to follow, because one day you may lose what you had and be replaced. A good leader must place the cards he is going to play his game with on the table and let his people decide whether to back him or not. Showing respect for people’s free will is something all leaders must do.
