I am a born leader that would like to be a follower. I always tell people that I would like to be a little worker bee BUT, no matter what the environment is, I become the leader.
Without followers, there can be no leaders and the reverse is also true. I saw someone say that followers are “weak”. I strongly disagree with this comment for many reasons.
It is like calling a woman weak for following her husband. No, she trusts the leadership of her husband. If he sucks as a leader, she likely will no longer follow him. Strong people know their strengths and weaknesses.
Although I am highly capable of being a leader, I don’t want the responsibility. Just let me be a follower. I am not a mindless follower, however. If something doesn’t feel or smell right, I’ll step up … begrudgingly.

I liked your answer to this and you definitely come across as a leader rather than a follower. I’m so glad you answered so I could get to know more about you xx
