Employees are Hired, Followers are Earned

By February 29, 2020Leadership

What is the difference between being a boss and being a leader?

It’s not your title, rank, position on the org chart, or the location of your office. Any of these might describe a boss or leader. It’s also not just a matter of semantics, a play on words.

In both cases, they are surrounded by people.

A boss is surrounded by employees. A leader has followers. Employees can be hired. Followers must be earned.

This might seem like a simple shift in thinking, but it has the potential to inflate or deflate your influence — and, therefore, your effectiveness.

So … two questions:

  • How do you want people to see you? As a boss or a leader?
  • How do you see the people who work with you? As employees or followers?

One of the things I enjoy the most is helping individuals or organizations reach their full potential.  It’s been said, “everyone wins when a leader gets better.”
