I'm sure everyone has already said it but leadership is not management. Leadership is the act of leading, it requires actions not a title.
On a hockey team, the leader is the captain. He leads by example, his teammates respect him. The GM does not tell the hockey players what to do, he manages their pay and who gets fired when the team does poorly.
In engineering, management is not leadership, it is management. The leaders are the guys who when they speak, everyone shuts up. The leaders are the guys who the team goes to for answers. The leaders are the ones who have the trust of the management.
If you are interviewing at a place that doesn't know the difference between management and leadership, and god forbid actually has a management person leading engineers, run. Run away. You don't want to work there. I have worked at places where management people lead engineers. The manager was trying to explain how hard it is to be an engineer to other managers and he said "they write thousands and thousands of lines of code with 10 logic statements on each line just to solve simple problems". That guy was an idiot, he was a management person trying to pretend that he had any technical leadership skills at all. That always fails. Other management people like it because they all speak the same language and they don't have to interface with the awkward engineers, but in the end you cant have management leading technical talent.
