Home Perspectives Distinguishing a Boss from a Leader

Distinguishing a Boss from a Leader

Are you a boss or a leader?

I hate the term boss. Whenever someone refers to me as their boss I almost feel like I’m doing something wrong as a leader. I want to ask forgiveness for making them think I’m the boss.

There are so many differences between a boss and a leader.

A boss seems to have all the answers, even if they really don’t.

A leader solicits input, leads a collaborative effort, to arrive at the right answer.

A boss tells people what to do.

A leader enlists the support of others.

A boss can be intimidating – if only by title.

A leader may challenge people, but will encourage – even during correction.

A boss dictates their own way.

A leader delegates the way to others.

A boss demands results.

A leader inspires others to succeed.

A boss controls through systems and processes.

A leader spurs ideas, creativity, and ingenuity.

A boss manages closely guarded policies.

A leader enables change, adapting policies as needed.

There is only one boss in any organization.

The best organizations have many leaders.

You have to pay someone to follow a boss.

People follow a leader willingly.

In fairness, there are times even the best leaders have to be the boss. Even the “bad guy” boss – at least in other people’s perception. Being a leader doesn’t mean you allow poor quality of work to prevail. There are times a leader has to micromanage. We need good systems and processes.

But, whenever possible, I much prefer to be a leader.

Ron Edmondson is the pastor at Immanuel Baptist Church, a church leader and the planter of two churches. He passionate about planting churches, but also helping established churches thrive. He loves assisting pastors and those in ministry think through leadership, strategy and life. His specialty is organizational leadership, so in addition to his role as a pastor, as he has time, Ron consults with church and ministry leaders. Ron has more than 35 years leadership experience, mostly as a self-employed business owner, and has been in full-time ministry for over 15 years. He has successfully led the restart of one church and the planting of two churches, and is now seeing God’s hand tremendously in church revitalization. Ron has a seminary master’s and a master’s in organizational leadership. He once helped lead (as an elected official) a mid-sized city, where he served as Vice Mayor and Finance Chair. The greatest times for Ron are with my wife Cheryl and their amazing adult sons, Jeremy, his wife Mary, and their youngest son Nate. Over 20 years ago, Ron founded a non-profit ministry called Mustard Seed Ministry, which provides devotional resources, conducts family, marriage and parenting, and church leadership seminars. Ron's INTJ personality on the Myers Briggs indicator means he has big ideas, he loves creative and critical thinking and he loves to see progress. Ron is usually around people, but craves down time. For years he was usually training for either a half or full marathon. Running was his most productive thinking time. Knee problems in recent years have caused him to stop running, but he is committed to finding the time he need to fuel my mind, body and spirit.
