Leaders are people who work with the nature not against it

What I have learned so far from LE module is that leader is a person, not necessarily manager who influence thoughts (I think primarily thoughts and then behavior changes itself) of other people and who make them follow towards the purpose people and overall organization could benefit from. Leader is a person who respects followers, who hold them in their arms and inspire them to follow alongside him; it is the person, who lead the change not manage it. Leader is person who understands people and their motives and makes them to be pride in their job and have a joy at work. How could I be leader, what qualities I already have to be an effective leader and what qualities and skills I lack? How I make people follow me and trust me? First of all I need to understand that people regardless their education have big natural potential and each person want to be respected and to have pride in himself. How can I ensure that with a help of the work people doing they will develop and open their abilities? When such opportunity will be open to them they will be more willing to contribute and work better. It is interesting that how we sometimes act against the nature. Managers want better results and performance; buy best resources and equipment without paying attention that big potential is in people, in their minds, in their abilities, not in best technologies. They force people to do their job and not to interfere with other activities not related to them. But people are by nature have a desire to be involved, to be important, to be heard. People want to develop it a natural desire. When people work for 20, 10, or even 2 years without any development, personal as well as professional they become bored and indifferent and do not like Sundays, because they now that the Sunday is day before Monday, when five day in the dark will start.
