Let’s try to under the difference between a leader and a leadership considering the above illustrations where black spots represent people. In Figure-1, anyone can easily spot the leader, who could be the first in either direction, but they are not followers, so they can’t be tagged as true leaders by definition. But many may have a question, why? The answer is, there is a high probability of a leader without being a follower, swayed easily.
One may become directionless, and once this will happen, needless to say about his followers. Moreover, there won’t be any growth in equal proportion in such a scenario, and at times, leaders quit because of extra burdens. In many cases, things disperse when two lines cross each other (X).
Let’s examine the second figure derived from the first figure by joining both extreme ends. In this case, it’s challenging to identify who is a leader and who is a follower. Moreover, you may find every leader is a follower, at least. So the chances of being swayed are almost null because all are leaders, and all are followers.
That implies there will be proportionate growth of all because the duty will be divided equally, or in other words, all will be responsible for fighting against a common challenge. In this case, growth could be slow but with minimal risk, measured when a smaller circle becomes larger every time (R>r).
With this, I would like to throw the challenge of being a follower before being a leader. Find one leader you would admire a lot and who would help you become who you are.
In short, allow you to be a leader. Let’s validate this process (#VoTP) by becoming a leader and then helping others become leaders and eventually making many big circles that will encapsulate the entire earth, which is round in shape.
