What is the difference between a good leader and a bad one? A good leader is inquisitive and eager to learn. A good leader can communicate and at the same time is a good listener who would rather lift than bring someone down. A good leader is goal orientated, creates a good atmosphere and inspires others. A good leader gives positive feedback in public and negative feedback privately. A good leader respect peopleโ€™s time off, and find ways to solve problems without disturbing them on their weekends or on their holidays. A good leader always gives the right person credit for innovative new ideas, whether they are small or big. On the other hand, a poor leader does just the opposite. What kind of leader are you? //Marianne

  1. “Always gives the right person credit..’ that is so very true, and few people remember to do that!
    great post! z

  2. Say, “Thank you”…….it always brings a smile.
    And to you Marianne, I say….thank you.

  3. Knowing how to communicate and to listen are for me a good start to become a leader.

    • Two very important subjects any time in life, but extra important when it comes to leadership. I once had a boss who didn’t like to talk to the employees. He locked his door in the morning, and only showed his face for lunch. He let me deal with everything, and I had to listen to extremely complex situations that I was not qualified to handle. I felt so sorry for everybody, especially the ones who was about 40 years older than me, sometimes they cried.

    You just described my boss…I am very fortunate ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Lynne, I am sorry I haven’t had the time to answer your comment until today but I’ve worked “crazy” hours the past week. Being a good leader is a tough job, but if you choose not to take your leadership seriously, how can you expect your employees to respect you and do a good job? It makes me happy to hear that you have a great boss, a big congratulation! ๐Ÿ™‚
