The National Society of Leadership and Success
Building leaders who make a better world

But I think we all know there is more to the story than that.



Although we use these terms interchangeably in popular culture, there is, in fact, a world of difference between a leader and a boss. Among other things, leaders empower, encourage, and inspire, rather than ruling through fear and stress. Here are five differences between the two–and some actionable mindsets for bosses to become leaders.

The diver entered the cage and lowered into the choppy ocean.  He adjusted the camera on its mount, checked his air flow, and then let the boat above know that he was set and ready to film.
 
Then a 20 foot Great White Shark swam at the cage, gripped it with its powerful jaws, and put two tons of weight behind the force of its attack.
 
It was heart stopping and it wasn’t even me in that cage.  But as the battle-scarred shark relented and others swam in to inspect this visitor into their world, it occurred to me.  There are some very serious leadership lessons to be learned here.  Lessons from the Sharks and from those who study and protect them.
 
Lessons we can only learn during Shark Week.

Part of the appeal of the Star Wars saga is that it is the classic hero’s journey. But there’s a lot more. Having worked with leaders in over 25 different industries, I can tell you with certainty, that if you pay close attention, there are some incredibly powerful instructions for how to successfully lead.

During my endeavor at Broward College, I have learned that connecting and becoming an active student, as well an active member of the community, plays a crucial part in one’s college years, right after academics. I was constantly involved at my college, whether it was being an officer for a club or volunteering for an event. I utterly enjoyed serving at events and the community, conversing with successful people, and merely growing as an individual. Although, after receiving an invitation to National Society of Leadership and Success, also known as NSLS, is when everything changed. This exquisite and professional organization is a great tool to become a successful leader. Other than the great perks offered for members, the main objective is to help others discover and achieve their goals.
