Be a Leader, Not a Boss.

12 Mar

We came across what we thought was a terrific graphic on LinkedIn recently and decided to share it with our Twitter and Facebook followers.  It got a lot of attention.   People started “liking” and “sharing” and “sharing” some more and before we knew it, thousands of eyes had viewed the graph.  It was clear that the subject matter struck a chord.

Aside from being well organized the graphic is simple, straightforward and easy to understand.   It speaks to the masses while still speaking to the individual.   These are all qualities we look for in any good presentation.  Organized, simple, easy to understand, personalized.

We’ve all been there.  We’ve had our share of bosses.  You know, the one who commands a room with fear, threats, demands and general impatience?  The one you couldn’t wait to leave at the end of the workday?  The one you worked “for” not the one you worked “with”?    We’re willing to bet that many of the people who “shared” the graphic did so with that boss in mind.

We’re hopeful, though, that others “shared” it, with leaders in mind.  They read those words and thought about how lucky they were to have landed a job they love.  They thought about how they felt appreciated, motivated and respected by their leader.    They looked forward to making a difference in their company.  They felt part of a team led by someone worth following.

For many people in a position of organizational power, leadership doesn’t just come naturally.   Leadership usually isn’t easy.  It takes work and development of a variety of skills, personal and professional.   At Fuller Communications, we specialize in helping build these skills.

A simple promotion can make you a boss.  Fuller Communications can help make you a leader.
