  • Leadership Makes You Strong!

    When you are a leader you have to face a lot of difficulties but an other thing is that difficulties make you strong. When we face difficulties the next time we become confident and we perform better. Followers don't even get a chance. So it is correct that it is better to be a leader than a follower.

  • Being a leader means you are respected.

    Being a middle school child, I have learned that if you are a follower you don't always receive the respect you deserve. Followers are most often ignored. While being a leader you are recognized more often, and get most of the credit for everything, weather it be school, work, a project or even doing the chores. Over all I believe being a leader is best.

  • Leader is a good post

    Being a leader lets you have the control. If you are just a follower you don't get any control over the decisions unless the leader says you can. While when you are the leader, you can control all the big decisions. Leaders get to make their own choices, while followers have to do what the leader says. That is why it is better to be a Leader (such as I) instead of a follower.

  • Being leader has benefits

    We leaders experience responsibility giving us power and benefit. We can lead our team to be more efficient. WE can have people work for us and we can feel the power. A follower has lower status than a leader. If the follower does not want to be leader who will lead?

  • It is better to be a leader

    To be a leader can give you a big challenge. When facing the challenge, you will try your best to handle the affairs as well as possible. In the process, you will constantly enhance yourself to adapt to different and complex long conditions. It also improve your total ability greatly.

  • YES

    It is possible to be a leader and a follower all at the same time. Haven't you heard of leading by example? By leading in the right direction, you encourage others to step up in leadership and as a whole, move others in the right direction.

  • I believe being a leader is better than being a follower.

    It can also depend on the person. Some people are not suited for being a leader. However, being a leader lets you choose your own opinions and you're not risking following a corrupt, unintelligent, unethical leader or a leader that lacks common sense. Like I said before, it also may depend on the person. Someone can have great abilities as a leader and others may not.

  • It is better to be a leader than a follower, because sometimes you can't trust your given leader.

    When choosing to lead or follow it is a great idea to sit down and scrutinize your leader's way of commanding. If your leader's principles are corrupt, then you would not want to continue to follow them. At this point, it is better to be a leader than a follower.

  • I don't get it

    People are always saying be a leader. We'll i think that thats a bunch of junk. Being a follower is way better. You don't have to come up with ideas. You could always depend on someone else doing the work for you giving you less things to worry about making you less stressed out.

  • Being a follower ..

    Being a follower is more better as it will help us not to go on other track and there is a lot of risk in being a leader ... It will put a lot of pressure on you and maybe you'll go in depression so I suggest being a follower is better so live and let live ..

  • Be a follower first.

    There is no harm in being a follower when you are being led by a good leader. Everything in life should go step by step so if you are a follower first and then a leader you will always benefit more. Plus every leader is a follower of his own values and principles. Thus no one can boast that he/she is a leader but not a follower.

  • It is not better to be a leader than a follower because being a leader is a great pain.

    It's not about being a leader, it's about being who you are. A leader has to take up too much of the responsibility and if something goes wrong it is the leader who is blamed. So isn't it obvious that being a follower is far better than being a bossy leader.

  • Being a leader is a total headache!

    A leader always has tension and he has to attend the need concerns of his followers whereas a follower has no tension he always is calm he gives his suggestions and relax whereas a leader has to hear everybody's ideas implement them add subtract something and many more so I would always support a follower.

  • It is best to know when to lead and when to follow.

    If there is already a capable leader in place, sometimes the most effective and responsible thing to do is to support that leader rather than trying to take over their role. If everybody tried to lead, civilizations would crumble and societies would break apart.

  • Leading isn't a preferable position to following, because not all people are their best in this position, and circumstances dictate who is best for this role.

    While some people possess skills that help them to perform in leadership roles more effectively than others, other people are the most productive as followers. Mostly, circumstances that call for anyone taking a role of leadership are more aptly described as ones reflecting a moral or social responsibility scenario than any other situation.

  • I think both being a leader and being a follower have their unique advantages, since leaders make their own ways, but do so with much greater risk.

    I think that sometimes it is better to be a leader and, other times, it is better to be a follower. Leaders make their own way, but, as a result, they are also more responsible, and put themselves at a greater risk than followers, should something go wrong.

  • Sometimes it's better to not lead anyone.

    Being a leader basically means you want others to become followers and let you guide them down their paths. I don't know about you, but I'd rather be my own leader and let the others decide what is best for them or what fits their life.

  • Is it to much to ask for both?

    One can not be a good leader without obeying orders and humbling oneself to the service of your people or followers. Just as a follower has to show an example to others by stepping up to follow orders. As much as we would all want to think we're the top dog, this is simply not true. We ALL have someone who we answer to whether this be our parents, teachers, leaders, morals, or God himself. There can not be Leaders without Followers just as we can't have Followers without Leaders. We all depend on each other. Thank you for hearing me out and may God bless you all.

  • It always depends

    If you want to become a leader then you have to take a lot of responsibilities. You have to deal with problems that might be blamed on you that you didn't cause. Being a follower is a good start to see your leader and know what they do to deal with problems and stuff. Then you start to thinking about being a leader or not.
