To dream of a leader represents an aspect of yourself that is noticeably assertive. A quality in yourself or others that takes charge. An aspect of your personality that feels responsible for others. It may also reflect a sense of duty to put others first at all costs. An area of your life where others are more important than you.
Negatively, a leader in a dream may be a sign that you are not caring enough about people with less power than you. Abusing power or authority. It may also be a sign that you are too passive or not being assertive enough. A sign that you need to stand up for yourself with more effort. A dislike of disciplining others.
Alternatively, from a negative perspective leaders in dream may reflect refusing to take responsibility for your actions or set a good example. Compulsive controlling behavior. An awful bossy person in your life. Scaring people with less power than you. Reckless decisions based on entitlement. Arrogance that is out of control. A tendency to excessively believe in one’s self.
