Quickly,
Leadership also comes in the initiatives one takes; of course the impact is way higher if one could involve others in the initiatives. Since these are initiatives outside of the strictly "necessary" core-job responsibilities & specifications, often you can involve peers, and other people totally outside of your range of influence. There is therefore no need for the "office management" or symbols of authority to get in the way.

We have worked with clients in similar positions, and helped them to successful admissions to the top-notch schools.

This is one of the hardest aspects for people new to the admissions process to grasp. So great question here. Leadership is not limited to being officially a people manager. Focus on your leadership experience when leading projects, deliverables, or initiatives. Also leadership can occur outside of the workplace in volunteer or extra curricular activities, which often provide the most unique and interesting opportunities. So it’s still possible if you’re not in a formal leadership capacity. Just need to think a bit more and frame appropriately.

Hi Vineet,

During our brainstorming exercises, we ask our applicants to come up with those examples where they: initiated, innovated, changed processes, delivered beyond expectations, added value to a task, mentored others.

For most of these, you don't need to be given formal leadership responsibility. People do these habitually and when you do them consistently, it shows a habit of leadership. Eventually, it is these initiatives that get you recognized at work and lead to leadership responsibilities.

If you are applying this year, introspect and come up with such situations. If you are applying in a few years, look out for opportunities at work where you can make impact by following these actions. It will help you build your profile for an MBA
