What about "The people will look to you" instead?

How would you say 'people will look at you', in a general sense?

Same way. "The people" sounds kinda strange here actually.

To look for is "procurar," while to look or look at is "olhar."

It is "procurar" even if you are looking for another person in a crowded room or piazza?

If it's "look for" as in "search for", its "procurar (por) você"

If it's "loof for" like "look after", "take care", then it's "as pessoas olharão POR você", but it's better to use "as pessoas vão cuidar de você".

So, if it's ''The people look to you'' (for leadership, say), the do you use 'a' ?

As in:

As pessoas olham a você ?

No, that would still be As pessoas olham para você.

But we don't say that very often. We would say "As pessoas admiram você" (People admire/look up to you) or something along those lines C:
