Helping folks with practical tips to manage themselves better

I Can Be Better


This evening, on my LinkedIn feed, I came across two powerful quotes on leadership that shook me up a little.

  1. A leader makes people feel safe. A boss makes people anxious.
  2. When I talk to managers, I get the feeling they are important, but when I talk to leaders, I get the feeling I am important.

I was shaken because I mentally checked where I stood from the point of view of these two quotes. I know I sometimes make some of my younger colleagues anxious, and in some conversations, I act and behave like I am the important person.

Note to myself- I can be better.
