The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say Thank You. In between the leader is a servant. (Max DiPree, late American businessman and writer)
To follow the leader, people need to understand his view of reality. Are his feet solidly “on the ground?” Then, what is his leadership style? As he or she gives direction, is it with a sort of dictatorial manner, or do they learn and serve right along with the team? And then, when the task is completed (and often along the way), do they show appreciation for their teammates’ work?
For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Matthew 20:28)
