When Does a Boss Become a Leader?
When he or she relies heavily on influence rather than authority. Leaders understand how to navigate the group dynamic. They get teams in tune. A musician doesn’t always know he is playing off-key until another instrument is around. A leader must be well-versed in both the positive and the discordant harmony. The discordant harmony is having the real conversations and relationship-building conflict that result in a high-performing healthy culture.
Adjusting how team members play in an organization takes a self-aware leader who can keep people focused on what matters most. A leader must focus his or her attention on the high-leverage actions that create sustainable, consistent outcomes.
Most bosses only reach their full leadership potential once in a while.
