Be a leader

Gelezen op een deur van een kantoor in Harare, Zimbabwe:

THE BOSS

The Boss drives his man,

The Leader inspires them.

The Boss depends on authority,

The Leader depends on goodwill.

The Boss evokes fear,

The Leader radiates love.

The Boss says `I',

The Leader says `We'.

The Boss shows who is wrong,

The Leader shows what is wrong.

The Boss knows how it is done,

The Leader knows how to do it.

The Boss has an idea,

The Leader has a vision.

The Boss demands respect,

The Leader commands respect.

So be a leader,

not a boss.
