What makes a leader? Followers.
The very phenomenon of leadership requires the presence of followers, and thus the relationship of followers and leaders defines the phenomenon of leadership. Why then do we spend so little time on the relationship itself or exploring the nature of followership? Probably because it’s easier not to look at such relational complexities.
In his presentation on followership, Greg explores those complexities through Shackleton’s exploits in Antarctica, laboratory study, and a multitude of true to life examples. The talk includes characteristics of good followership and a structure for examining one’s own leader-follower relations.
