A Boss vs A Leader

The difference between a boss and a leader:

A boss thinks their opinion is the only one that matters.

A leader knows the importance of taking the opinion of others into consideration.

A boss demeans and disrespects those who can contribute to the success of the entity.

A leader understands the importance of everyone’s contribution and seeks to treat others respectfully.

A boss throws temper tantrums in order to get others to comply.

A leader is mature enough to know the importance of maintaining self-control.

A boss will enlist the assistance of “yes” people in an attempt to “shame” someone into compliance.

A leader asks questions to understand why people think the way they do.

Be a leader, not a boss. Leaders never run out of people willing to assist them on their mission. Bosses find themselves constantly starting over again.
