The Difference Between Boss and Leader

Every leader is a boss. But every boss is not a leader. This defines the difference between a boss and a leader. The most significant difference between a boss and a leader is one. The boss is respected and obeyed because of their seniority. A leader is respected and looked up to as an example not only because of seniority but mainly because of the qualities of character and ability. Please view these wallpapers in this reference.

Those who aspire to become leaders must lead by example. The team must always believe that the leader will be there during every crisis. Not to fix the blame but fix the problem. If the team members find that the leader does not follow what they preach, they will have no respect for them. They may obey them, but respect will be missing. Leaders gain this respect through their actions. They look and act sincerely. There is no mismatch between their words and actions. They look integral in approach and character.

To be a leader, every boss must display characteristics such as knowledge, planning, anticipation, foresight, action, result-oriented approach, and perspective, respect every team member, earn their respect, and act as a friend and mentor. This is quite a list, but if you want to become a good leader, you need these qualities. This is true not only for national leaders but also for persons in any organization's leadership position. Once a person earns the respect of their team members, they cease to be only a boss and transforms into a leader.
