Example #2
"I would rather lead in some instances, and follow in others. While I am training and gathering my bearings, I will be more of a listener and follower. Once I know the ropes, I can comfortably take the lead whenever required of me."
Example #3
"As a manager, I am most certainly more of a leader. With that said, I love to learn and absorb new things with requires me to be a follower at times too."

Example #6
"I am a leader by nature. I am competitive and like to hit my goals and coach others to do the same. With that said, I will be a happy and attentive follower when required."

"Teachers always take the lead, it seems - and I am happy to do so! I believe that I offer a solid balance between leading and following, swapping between the two when it's appropriate."
