What is the difference between being a boss and being a leader? Bosses become self-absorbed, thinking only about what they must do to see results. On the other hand, leaders look outward to uplift the team to greater levels of success! Why is it important to be a leader instead of a boss? As the common saying goes, “People don’t leave companies – people leave managers.” As a leader, people will have the desire to follow your lead. As a boss, people will react to you. They might even push against you. As you can see, there is a big difference in being a boss verses being a leader.
