Episode 72: Leading Without A Title

In this episode of eLABorate Topics podcast, cohosts Lona Small, Stephanie Whitehead and Tywauna Wilson discuss how you can lead without a title.

All of the cohosts agreed that a leader is not necessarily one with a title of manager, supervisor, lead technologist or other well- known titles in the lab. A leader is one who can be a role model and influence others to follow them or their ideas.

One can use different ways to lead, such as:

· Coming up with new ideas and being innovative to solve issues such as improved workflow

· Volunteer to lead projects such as validating a new instrument or being a super user on and LIS project

· Supporting the team by being a great team player

· Train others on the team

· Support the role- base leader by reducing their work load

· Taking responsibility for outcomes from any action or error

There are many benefits involved in being a leader without a title:

· Being able to allow your team to shine without having the pressure to do so

· Opportunities to prepare for promotion into a role-based leader

· Enjoying the positive outcome that comes with your innovations and support

· Getting a chance to lead teams

· Enjoying a stronger team of more leaders leading without a title
