When we think about leaders of an company we tend to look up the organizational hierarchy and focus on title. Scott Edinger, coauthor of The Hidden Leader, published by AMACOM, understands the impulse but wants you to remember that there’s plenty of leadership power that doesn’t just come from a title. It’s your go-to people, the mid-level managers and individual contributors who are ready to be tapped. So before you look to outside sources for solutions, remember to look at the resources you already have.
