Maybe in someone`s opinion ,to be a member of a group would not have to shoulder some responsiblities ,deal with a variety of persons ,and spend a wealth of time in its daily affairs while the leader have to ;but,when taking the benefical factors into consideration ,compared with the so-called negative
aspects mentioned above ,we can safely say that it is better to a leader of a group than to be a member of a group!
Of course ,a leader of a group ,is intrinsically a member of the group ,so in this sense ,the leader should answer for the duties a common member should do and also can enjoy the relating rights a common a member can do .Beside as a leader of the group ,he or she should be responsible for many other duties like the management and the development of the group ,and maybe someone takes these obligations as a burden ,but for me ,I think it is an opportunity to fullplay a leader`s talents and potentiality and thus to win the respect as well as trust of the members of the group ;and from this standpoint ,no more benefical and challenging is than to be a leader of a group .
Then as a leader of a group ,he or she will be endowed with more chance to deal with shades of peoples and thus can learn how to get along with them well and also can win a pool of friends ,who maybe of specail importance for his or her future .
As a matter of fact ,there are a good numbers of reasons to support my view ,
but I think the ones said above are to the point.So my choice is definitely to be a leader.
