What Type of a Business Owner Are You? A Boss or a Leader (Infographic)

There is a famous believe in the business world that a boss is someone who just gives orders to the employees without taking part in the work process and the leader is the one who leads by his examples and takes the responsibility.

When starting a new business one of the aspects that will determine whether it will be successful or not is what attitude you have toward your employees.

Recently we stumbled upon a great infographic created by Wrike for the purpose and we decided that it’s a good idea to share it with you.

They clearly define what the difference between a boss and leader is.

To sum it up, if you want to be a leader you must inspire and support your employees, not intimidate them. A leader is always there to support and listen others and isn’t afraid to take matters into his own hands.

A few words from us:

Being a leader and not just a boss is essential for your business for a number of reasons. Keep in mind that you don’t just need workers, but motivated individuals that really care about what they are doing and that want to see your business grow and succeed not only because of personal benefits but also because of they believe in your idea.

Can you achieve that by just sitting behind your desk and giving unrealistic orders?

Can you achieve it by intimidating others and creating a team that is afraid that if they make a mistake, it will be their last?

The answer is clear – No.
