Leading supposes there is also a following; so what if you partner does not follow?
It isn't necessary for your partner to follow you. Leading means to lead uke's motion by staying just ahead of it while you follow him.

This is a two-way street since uke can also transfer power into nage.
As long as you stay ahead of uke's movement and mirror him, there can be no transference of power from him to you.
