To lead or not to lead?

I have to admit that I have always been very sceptical towards the leadership issue.I understand that in todays circumstances an increasing need for decisive and daring people has been created. But a leader? Isn't that a bit farfetched?

Maybe I think like this because I am intimidated by both having a leader and of course being one(if possible)
To think of it, this could be one of the many reasons why I choose this course: to discover what a leader is.

So who is a leader? Or even better what makes a leader?Is it power?Experience? Or talent?
Is it like a role playing game where someone gets to be a leader and has the "pleasure" of ordering people around?

I really don't know( I can't wait to find out though)
I am guessing that in a way, a leader is his team.A leader is nothing without his team, because with no team who is the leader going to lead?-very obvious thought-
So a leader should watch out for his team!After all they are all working together and trying to reach the same goal.That only comes through cooperation-or at least that's my opinion-

Finally, as I accept the fact that there are "leaders" all over the place...I realise that there are also different kinds of leaders for example I have met a democratic leader and unfortunately, an arrogant leader.

What I would to meet (or even be some day)is a leader gifted to inspire. One who will reveal his vision, a vision his team will follow and support religiously.
Who could ever refuse to support a vision?

Certainly not me...
