A leader is a motivation for others and inspires individuals to aim high and attain that aim.
However a boss only supervises over his subordinates.
He assertively works towards the goal but never gets pushy for it. He works as a team and team welfare is his primary goal.
A continuous self study, training, evaluation and imbibing positive things in life develop the characteristics of a leader. A leader is looked upon by his subordinates critically also.
Throughout my life, I have encountered the chance to experience the position of being a leader.
I have to suffer democratic leaderships through playing on a high school football team, being apart of groups in college for class presentations, being a youth leader in my church, and also being apart of a family.
A leader is someone who stands not only for his cause but takes responsibility and motivates other individuals also.
There is a clear difference between being a boss and a leader.
