Leadership is something you do.
It is not a rigid caste from which many people are barred.
It is not a highly centralized system where everyone goes to the padrone for answers.
Given certain circumstances, anyone in an organization may perform leadership responsibilities even though those responsibilities may not be in their normal duties.
The key considerations revolve around what the situation demands and how well the responsibilities are performed.
