A leader is someone who has the authority to tell a group of people what to do. In the simplest sense, a leader is somebody whom people follow. A group with no leader is called leaderless. A leader is one who gets others to take action towards a common goal. One job of a leader is to govern the actions of followers. A leader also represents a group or company. For example, the Prime Minister of Canada has the authority to govern the society of Canada and represent the people of Canada. He is a leader.
