Leader and follower
Although employees are often dislike managers use their power control over people, to some degree leadership is require people to do the things you wanted them to do. I think a good leadership is control people but don't make them feel been controlled. Most companies are looking for leaders who can inspire the others, but I think inspiration also comes under certain bias. Leaders are also people, they have their own ideas and thoughts, so when they inspire the others they also communicating their own idea across. That's why we often hear "My manager is not happy." It is because things did not move the way he/she expected. Instead of going around circles, managers could tell employee what to do which may also save time and cost. I think it is good to say that leader should inspire employees, but in real life situation unless the employee has come up with a much better idea, they often follow the leader's idea.
Value and attitude shape a person's response to situations, but affect themselves and others. I wonder, what the right attitude to become leader is and especially when we have interview, how the HR judge a person can be a good leader or not. Although we talk about our leadership experience but I don't think this can really show we are a good leader or not, may be just good at organising events.
