Humans are a social animal; we like to hang out with one another, and most of us prefer to adhere to a vertically structured hierarchy where we find our place/space either somewhere inside the pack, or else gravitate towards the top of it. The majority of people, given the opportunity to do so freely, choose the social position they are most internally comfortable with. Some choose to lead, some choose to follow. Since the hierarchy typically has a multitude of levels, you will have followers following other followers, the leadership thing being entirely relative until you finally reach either top or bottom.
