The Art of Followership
September 13, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm CDT
Dynamic and Courageous Followers Create Effective Leaders
“Never be a follower; always be a leader!” – Those are the words we hear from parents, teachers, coaches and employers for most of our life. To be a follower is at the very least a weakness and at the most, paramount to failure! Yet, how can everyone be “the leader”?
There are naturally many more followers than leaders. Is this majority, those individuals who are follower-people, irrelevant or insignificant? We are a society in love with leadership and uncomfortable with followership, yet the two are inseparable! Though much has been written about leadership, skilled and active followership is as vital to success as good leadership. The proficiency and quality of the execution of a decision is often as important as the decision itself. Followers have the greatest opportunity to shine and contribute in a way that pushes the business to new heights.
Followership is NOT:
• Meek or passive
• Subservient or compliant
• Responsible, engaged, and challenging
• Dynamic and courageous
• Critical to the leading process
This powerful webinar presents the case for the importance of skilled followers who thoughtfully support, encourage, coach, influence and commend their leader. Never again should one feel as though a follower role is an inferior position. It is an essential component of a successful business team!
