Leadership is a process that emerges from a relationship between leaders and followers. People will be more effective leaders when their behaviors indicate that they are one of us, that they share our values, concerns and experiences, and are working for us. Perhaps aspiring leaders would be better served by ensuring that they are seen to be a good follower.

This suggests that what good leadership looks like is highly dependent on where evaluators are standing.
