Leadership comes in all shapes and sizes. Being a CEO does not make you a leader. It might make you a baby sitter.
The general consensus is that most leaders are in very prestigious positions. This is far from the truth. There are leaders everywhere. Bottom lines, middle management, employees, even people without jobs can be and are leaders.
What you do is not as important as how when it comes to leadership. You can be a leader right where you are. There are no fees, or qualities that you have to be born with. Just step up and start leading.
Exactly how, is up to you.
