To be a charismatic boss, you must have good leadership skills. At the same time, you must be able to coach your people. What is the link between these three elements? A leader may be a coach, and a coach may be a leader, but a leader and a coach may not be a boss. Anyhow, the most important point is that as a boss, you need to be both a leader and a coach.
How would you define ‘leadership’ from your perspective? Who is responsible to be a leader? Based on Simon Sinek, leadership is not specifically the responsibility of people in a top-level management; leadership is everyone’s responsibility. It is a practicable and learnable skill that gives everyone the ability to be a leader. To be a good, strong leader, all it takes is consistency to keep practicing. He also stated that leaders are not responsible for the job, but they are responsible for the people that should be in charge of the job. Leaders must know when and how to take risks for the benefit of everyone.
As a boss is one who is in charge of an organisation and is the sole decision-maker in the company. This is why bosses need to know how to be a good leader. In combination with leadership, bosses must know how to teach, train, mentor and provide counselling to their people in order to unlock their people’s maximum potential – a simpler process to all that called coaching.
