The differences between „a boss“ and „a leader“

Recently I stumbled upon some very funny and at the same time truthful illustrations. They show the differences between “a boss” & “a leader”.

Unfortunately, I still haven’t met many leaders… How about you?

Boss vs. Leader

Impersonal Compassionate
Says „I“ Says „We“
Uses people Develops people
Inspires fear Earns respect
Takes credit Gives credit
Micromanages Delegates
Says „go“ Says „let‘s go“
Thinks short-term Thinks long-term
Focused on process Focused on people
Is your „boss“ Is your „colleague“
