••
LEADER VS BOSS:
12 DELINEATING
LEADERSHIP
CHARACTERISTICS
12.
LEARNING &
GROWTH
A focus on the why is
one of the critical
characteristics of a
leader – it makes
learning sustainable
and transferable to
other situations.
11.
EMOTIONAL
INTELLIGENCE
A boss is a subject
matter expert. A leader
is an emotional and
people expert. Great
leaders are very
sensitive, albeit not
emotional.
10.
DISTRIBUTION OF
SUCCESS
One of the incredible
characteristics of a
leader is linking
individual success to
the success of those
they lead.
If those people do not
succeed, the leaders
have failed in both
their minds – and
hearts.
9.
WHO OWNS
ACCOUNTABILITY
A boss holds you
accountable. A leader
grows the confidence
and passion from
within you to build self-
accountability.
It is an incredible
process to watch
unfold and supports
sustainable success all
around.
8.
SUCCESS
MEASURES
Bosses determine their
success by a title
position or hierarchy in
the business.
Leaders define their
success by the passion
and impact of the
people they influence.
7.
AUTHORITY
DEPENDENCY
A boss depends on
positional power to
have an impact.
Leadership influence in
not dependent on
power or position.
Some of the most
fantastic leaders I have
encountered had no
authority over the
people they influenced.
6.
PRIORITY FOCUS
A boss focuses on what
is right now – putting
out the daily fires.
A leader stays focused
on doing what is right.
5.
OPERATIONAL &
DECISION
PRIORITIES
A boss focuses
decisions on the
competition. Leaders
stay aware of their
competition, but
operate with a legacy
in mind.
This also supports not
making potentially bad
decisions at the
moment and focusing
on the future.
4.
MOTIVATORS
A boss is driven by fear
and reaction. A leader
stays driven by passion
and purpose – even
during the challenging
times.
3.
CAREER GOALS
This is a HUGE definer
of a boss vs leader. A
boss always wants to
stay your boss. A
leader – much like a
parent – wants you to
do better.
A leader would proudly
build you to ‘the boss.’
2.
PRINCIPLES OF
PLEASURE
A boss gets pleasure
from being recognized
for doing a great job.
Leaders get pleasure
out of seeing others
rewarded for the
fantastic results of
their passion.
1.
CONDITIONING OF
COMMUNICATION
Bosses keep you
wondering or in fear
just enough so that
you tell them what
they want to hear. At
the least, they
condition you not to
say what they do not
want to hear.
Leaders build your
confidence and trust
so you will tell them
what they need to
hear.
