A Leader does not do things on his own. A leader is the one who knows what to do and is the one who identifies who can do it. A leader is the one who identifies and grooms future leaders by training and delegating responsibilities.
A boss is someone:
Who hires subordinates who can do what he wants them to do. He rarely delegates. He rarely gives credit. He passes on the responsibilities , but keeps the credit and pass the blame if anything fails.
A leader is always surrounded by talented subordinates. A boss is always surrounded by useless chamchas.
A leader fires chamchas, A boss hires chamchas.
Just like bugs are attracted towards light, Talented people are naturally attracted towards leaders. Chamchas hates leaders.
Are you a chamcha or talented worker?
If you see yourself praising your boss instead of working most of the time, then you are a chamcha
If you standup when your boss comes before you, you are a chamcha. A leader will not expect his subordinates to standup when he come.
A boss is different to that of a leader. Sometimes a boss also sees gender and gives preference based on gender out of his subordinates. A leader only sees talent. A boss scouts for a profile pic on linkedin while hiring. A leader sees the talent of the profile on linkedin. The preference given by a Boss will be more if the female profile had a profile pic on linkedin. The preference given by a leader will be more if the profile had more recommendations and endorsements.
