Are you working for a boss or are you working for a leader?
There’s a huge difference between what makes a boss and what makes a leader. They act very differently in a lot of ways — they adopt different management styles, build different relationships, and make different decisions. How do you spot one from the other?
Here are a few things to consider:
A boss says “GO!”, but a leader says “LET’S GO!”
A boss says “I HAVE DONE IT!”, but a leader says “THE TEAM HAVE DONE IT!”
A boss use you as a tool to achieve his/her organizational or personal goals, a leader nurtures you to help you perform & reach everyone’s goal
A boss always commands you to do work, a leader asks
A boss scolds you for when the plan didn’t work, a leader says “LET’S TRY DIFFERENT SOLUTION”
A boss only knows how its done, a leader teaches you how to do it
A boss creates threats & pressure to get the job done, a leader helps you to get the job done
