Followership

Book Description

Followers dominate all organizations, but a preoccupation with leaders hinders the consideration of the importance of followers and the relationship between followers and leaders. Followership: What It Takes to Lead will teach you how to become a better leader by becoming a better follower. The book includes chapters on the topics of: leadership theory, followership theory, preparation for the job, understanding what is required for the job, communication, initiative, positive attitude, responsibility, problem solving, and teamwork. It also provides suggestions for becoming an exemplary follower, which will demonstrate and manifest the skills associated with leadership as well as bridge the gap between leadership training and followership.
