The differences between a boss and a leader

While a leader can be a boss, not every boss is a leader, though ideally they should be. However, sometimes there’s a mismatch between these two roles; although both have nearly identical definitions, they are very different in today’s career oriented society.

While a bosses are mostly concerned with results, leaders feels responsible for the process of those results and the people who see them through.

When people dream of getting to higher positions in life, whether it’s business or politics, they dream more about being bosses rather than leaders.
