When you become a restaurant manager, you take on more responsibility and become a central part of the business. Your staff relies on you for guidance, and it’s your job to make sure everyone else is doing their job correctly. While anyone can be a boss, it takes a special kind of dedication to be a team leader.
A meme recently popped up on the Server/Restaurant Biz Life Facebook page that lays out the difference between your average boss and a true leader, and it’s straight and to the point.
Some bosses are authoritative, inspire fear, issue commands, place blame, take all the credit, and use employees for their own gain. True leaders coach their employees, generate enthusiasm, fix problems, give credit where it’s due, ask for input, and consider themselves part of the team.
Are you a boss or a leader?
