Boss or Leader?

Since stepping into the leadership role as the president of the Residential Forum, I’ve come across an array of information this past year with regards to what it takes to be successful as a leader. I think it’s that whole frontal lobe theory that whatever is on your mind shows up everywhere you look.

My biggest takeaway so far was a diagram outlining the difference between a leader and a boss. I’ve never liked the word “boss” very much, so I’m striving to be a good leader (gotta be good before you can become great), and since I always find gentle reminders helpful, I’ve attached the diagram below. May we all continue to grow in a positive and forward direction in the year ahead.
