I wish I was patient enough to give leading a go. The few times I've tried it I thought it was really, really difficult. I definitely did not get any compliments. But then I was dancing with a leader who tried following for the first time, and for him it was a breeze... Very annoying! But I can imagine that, if nothing else, learning how to lead must give you a deeper understanding of the follower's role, which I'm missing out on.
