There’s a big difference between being a leader and being a boss. I’ve had my share of “bosses” and I’ve also had the pleasure of working with some amazing leaders. When I feel i’m working for a boss, I usually quit very soon after realizing it cause life is too short to work for people that just don’t get it.
