One of the things I learned a long time ago is that there is a difference between a "designated" leader and a "real" leader. One has the title of "leader" while the other has the skills of a "leader" whether he/she has the title or not.

I used to teach those about to be ordained priests, "If you ever find yourself pounding the pulpit yelling that you are the pastor and you therefore need to be obeyed, you have just publicly admitted that you are not a leader. You might be a validly ordained priest and you might have the title of "pastor," but you have just proven that you do not have the skills to "pastor" with any credibility.  A good "leader" does not always have to remind people of his position.
