“The first man who, […] bethought himself of saying “This is mine”, and found people simple enough to believe him, was the real founder of civil society.” (Jean Jacques Rousseau, A Discourse on the Origin of Inequality.)
This idea came up after centuries of discrimination and injustices between the different social classes: it was a traditional hierarchical society where the leader was still a despotic and anarchic person who wanted to have the control of everything and everyone. Things and visions changed with the passing of time until nowadays. Organizations have changed over the past several decades, developing a new civil and agreeable relation between the leader and the employee.

The “leader” is not someone who just tells his workers what to do; he’s a guide for every person who decides to be with him.
