Is Leadership Everything?

In William Shakespear's play, Julius Caesar, Caesar found out that leadership over friendship will never work. Julius had it all, a devoted wife, surrounded by friends and practically the king of Rome. The citizens of his beloved country loved and worshipped him. Never would he have guessed that his exalted position and status over his friends, his ambition, would cause his closest advisers and friends to become his biggest threats and enemies. Brutus, one of Caesar's closest few, plotted against him and was the first to stab him in the back. A wound that lead to his death.
A lesson that should be followed by everyone, the best leader can also follow. A leader can not truely lead if he/she loses their followers due to pride and hautiness.
