Don’t wait to be asked: Lead
Kellogg Insight Article:
Typically there’s no shortage of people that can find problems within an organization and see there are issues that need to be addressed.

It doesn’t matter if you have people reporting to you, if you see a problem in your organization and think you can figure out how to change and make things better, you need to do so. Take charge, make suggestions, do your homework and start building your network while you encourage and inspire other leaders to grow and make a difference in your organization. The thought that you’re not in position to make a difference should never be a wall that you face; in fact, there is evidence that your organization will likely applaud you for the work you do to help correct the problems in your company.
