Are you a boss or a leader?
Leadership approaches have a huge impact on team performance.
Some people use the terms “boss” and “leader” interchangeably, but the two are not the same. Managing like a boss is different from managing like a leader. A boss manages, commands, intimidates, and watches employees, while a leader teaches, listens, inquires, and inspires them to bring out the best in themselves.
In today’s world, being a leader rather than a boss is more effective. You might be thinking to yourself, “But I’m a good boss” — which may be true. However, the real question you need to ask yourself is: “Am I a good leader?” Good leaders not only motivate and inspire their teams to perform their best, but they are also part of the team themselves.
