A Leader Vs A Boss

Please don't be a boss.

A Leader Vs A Boss

I have a job that allows me to manage a group of people. But I, too, have a boss that I have to answer to. In my time of managing others and being managed, I have noticed there is a huge difference between a leader and a boss. I've always heard a bad manager makes a good employee quit, and I think that statement is absolutely true.

A leader is part of the team they are leading. They will work just as hard, and typically harder, than the team members. A leader will make sure that everyone is understands the task at hand and knows communication is key. A leader will do everything with the best interest of the company in mind, not themselves. A leader will not diminish you or try to control everything.

But a boss...well they are the complete opposite of a leader. A boss isn't part of the team, they are the head of the team. The boss would rather tell you what to do then show you how to do it. They won't work as hard as the team, because a boss thinks the team can do all the work. A boss doesn't understand the importance of communication, and they rely on everyone else to make sure everyone knows what is going on. A boss does things in their best interest, not the interest of the team or company. A boss dismisses your ideas, and micro manages everything.

A boss does not think of their workers as a team, a boss thinks of their works as their workers.

Don't be a boss, be a leader.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
