True, a leader can be nothing more than a jobtitle. Beeing in charge often comes to those who can be regarded as informal leaders.

I find leaders as being in the front, often with no knowledge of what they are doing, and those in charge as those who find themselves doing and not always realizing they are leading.

Hm. I quite find the opposite of true. Being a leader means to me that one has a holistic view on things and processes. Being in charge means that you can put responsibility to other persons shoulder...
