Leaders need followers, and followers need
leaders; moreover, in today's world we must move skillfully from followership
to leadership roles and vice-versa depending on context. That said, there's a
two-fold challenge to fulfilling followership responsibilities: one, overcoming
the perception of followership as secondary position and thus not being a
leader; and two, knowing how to be an effective follower.


In this interactive session we'll probe
the meaning of followership and how you can incorporate this understanding into
your work.


Understanding ourselves as followers will
increase our effectiveness and positively impact staff members and patrons. In
turn, it will help us to be better leaders when we assume that role.


this session, we will cover important information on:


  • Becoming aware of our own personality
    and work style, and how they affect our followership;

  • Identifying key attributes of
    effective followers; and

  • Implementing best practices of
    followership in our work as followers and leaders.
