Lots of the clients that I work with supervise others.  

Principals guide their schools.

Teachers manage their students. 

Managers direct workers.  

Owners of businesses supervise their employees.

Here’s an important question for anyone in any of these roles:  Are you a boss or a leader?

boss is someone who issues orders or tells others what to do. They treat employees like… subordinates. They say, “I’m paying you to do a job-so do it.” or “I’m in charge of teaching you, so follow directions.”

leader is someone who embodies positive qualities, guides and directs others and models the work ethic that they expect from others.   They treat employees like… people.  They say, “I hired you because I saw in you the qualities of a leader.  I’m here to show you the way to develop those qualities and benefit both yourself and the business. I’m holding the space for you to be the best you can be in this environment and I’m here to lead the way to success.”

Think of any great leaders that  you have experienced. What are the qualities they embody?

visionary

honest

humble

inspiring

decisive

passionate

servant-teacher

disciplined

dedicated

hardworking

supportive

Maybe you could add a few yourself?  

How do leaders grow their employees to be leaders in their own lives?

  • They teach:  Leaders don’t just tell their team what to do–they show them how to do it.
  • They hold their team accountable:  Leaders don’t just give an assignment and then leave. They follow up, they assess and they encourage growth.
  • They share a vision:  Leaders know how to set goals and develop passion in their team for accomplishing those goals.
  • They recognize effort:  Leaders know that people thrive on approval, appreciation and attention.  They let their team know that they matter and they do it regularly.  

So are my questions for you… who do you lead?
