“Followership … The Other Side of Leadership”
Today’s leaders are tasked with creating an environment that sets up people and teams for success. An often-overlooked piece of that puzzle is “followership” – individuals who are active participants in achieving goals and meeting objectives. Some even call it “the other side of leadership”.
Followership is the ability to take direction well, be fully engaged in the mission, understand individual and team goals, know how to support leaders, and make a conscious decision to be a positive contributor all along the journey.
According to Dr. Rex Gatto of Gatto Associates, LC, “The role of followers is not to be mindlessly implementing the ideas of leaders. Their role is to help the leaders become effective while remaining true to their own values and essential needs, demonstrating self-management skills, and being effective individual contributors, even in the absence of leadership.’
This webinar will showcase the tenants of followership (such as creating a climate of mutual trust) and present them as an integral part of building individual competency in leading oneself and fostering a culture of shared leadership.
