The people's decision to follow the leader doesn't automatically translate to love and respect.
In leadership, there's a difference between leading and being followed. If you're leading, it means people rely on you. If you're simply being followed, it means they only comply with you.
Chances are, our type of leadership today creates a culture of self-centeredness, individualism, doubt, and competition—a perfect recipe for an inevitable disaster where everyone becomes a casualty.
