Tuesday Tidbit

I came across this poem recently, and wanted to share it.  Simply put and thought-provoking.  Unfortunately, the author is unknown.

Bosses and Leaders

A boss drives.  A leader coaches.

A boss depends on authority.  A leader on goodwill.

A boss inspires fear.  A leader inspires enthusiasm.

A boss says, “I.”  A leader says, “We.”

A boss fixes blame.  A leader fixes problems.

A boss knows.  A leader shows.

A boss says, “Go.”  A leader says, “Let’s go!”

Tuesday Tidbits are weekly messages I have been sending to my leadership team for about five years.  They are generally short & sweet, often focused on leadership or teamwork, always positive and hopefully, motivational.  A co-worker recently suggested the Tuesday Tidbit was blog-worthy.  I hope you find some meaning in them.
