Suppose someone's CV / resume says "I lead a team of 3 specialists". Would this mean:
- There are three specialists. This person is the most senior, line managing the other two.
- There are three specialists, and one manager. This person is the manager. They are not necessarily trained in the same specialisation as the three specialists.
- It is ambiguous. It could mean either, and there is no one "correct" usage of this phrase.
To illustrate - which of these would it imply?
1. is true for me. I want to be sure that, when I'm describing this, I'm not accidentally saying something that could be interpreted as being deliberately misleading.
I've read What differentiates a manager from a team leader? and it sounds like there's no universal convention about whether "team leader" as a role is different or the same as "manager", so I suspect 3 is true, but this isn't my area of expertise.
