Hello there ~ Thanks for your question.
Being a leader isn't just about the title you have in the company. It's about how you show up: doing great work, being a person of your word (do what you say you're going to do), and showing initiative above and beyond what is expected of you.
If you're looking to expand your visibility as a leader, here are 4 keys to keep in mind:
1. Identify what your natural leadership style and strengths are and work towards expanding the use of those strengths.
2. Keep your eyes and ears open to see where there are challenges/opportunities in the organization that your natural skills can be assistance with and begin to take initiative to help solve those issues.
3. Speak with your manager/boss to find out what areas they need your help with and how you can grow your skills to assist in those areas to further expand the success of your team/organization.
4. Ask for what you need. If you don't feel challenged enough by your work, then ask for additional assignments that will expand your skill sets and allow you to be of greater assistance to the team.
Bottom line: It's about being a positive force for good in an organization by asking questions, taking the lead even when it's hard or uncomfortable, and developing trust and collaboration among your colleagues. Inspiring others along the way as you help the team to move the ball forward.
