Is a boss different than a leader ? I'd like to think so and I'm sure you'd agree. Keeping it clear and simple I'd like to point out the major differences between them:
A boss inspires fear. A leader inspires enthusiasm.
A boss uses words like "I", "Go". A leader uses words like "We", "Let's go".
A boss knows how it is done. A leader shows how it is done.
A boss's focus is on fixing the blame for the problem. A leader's focus is on fixing the problem.
A boss drives people. A leader coaches them.
A boss makes work a drudgery. A leader makes work...fun, like a game.
A boss depends on authority. A leader on good will.
A boss has people working for him. A leader has people working with him.
A boss will make you see your flaws. A leader will help you discover your potential.
There are a lot of things that make a boss be way different than a leader,
