A Boss vs A Leader:

  • Drives Employees…Coaches them
  • Depends on Authority…Depends on Goodwill
  • Inspires fear…Generates enthusiasm
  • Says, “I”…Says, “We”
  • Places blame for the breakdown…Fixes the breakdown
  • Knows how it is done…Shows how it is done
  • Uses people…Develops people
  • Takes credit…Gives credit
  • Commands…Asks
  • Says, “Go”…Says, “Let’s Go”

Which one are you?  Which one are your growing yourself to be?
