One of the perks of
leading without authority
is that those formally in charge
usually have a clear agenda.

Often this agenda
is not driven by them
(unless they occupy the C-Suite).
They don’t have a lot of choice
about what they’re trying to achieve.

When you don’t have official authority,
you usually don’t have an official agenda either.
You can be more neutral
(everyone always has some sort of bias)
when you investigate possibilities.
You can choose which goals you wish to pursue.

In other words,
you have more freedom.

Eventually if you’re good at what you do
and you create results
or even waves,
someone is going to give you
official authority
so enjoy this sweet spot
for as long as possible.

Go out there and make a difference!
