Though the definition itself is somewhat derogatory, that author has dispelled this notion through this book. As a believer
in the law of averages, and quoting from his own experience of around forty years, the author says that there would be
more good guys in organizational corridors of power than bad ones. Yet there is big room for improvement for the good
guys too. A leader has a much larger role to play which affects performance and progress of the entire organization. At
the core of leadership lies vision, mission, direction, wisdom, sacrifice and also a moralistic stance. In contrast, the role
of a boss is more 'hands on' and largely revolves around and is focused towards 'people management' and interpersonal
relations with the employees of the organization. The boss subordinate relationship becomes very personal and that is
why one would say 'He is my boss, and you will seldom get to hear anything like, 'he is my leader.' It is the softer part of
leadership which is the hardest to manage! Putting it in another way, a boss is in your immediate vicinity with whom you
deal on a daily basis, whereas a leader may be visible only from a distance. During the Gilded Age, in the 19th century
in the United States, bossism was a system of political control centering around a single powerful figure-the boss. The
central figure had tremendous clout and influence in terms of political control. In that context also, boss was to do more
with "control†? and perhaps nothing to do with leadership. In the modern environment, bossism is about 'atmospherics',
which has a direct impact on a subordinate's performance as well his personal life and happiness too. Therefore, bossism
is skewd more towards emotional intelligence rather than the IQ of a boss.
