It seems like everyone is enamored with leading. There is no shortage of books, posts, videos, and quotes on what it takes to lead and to lead well. However, if everyone leads then who follows? For leaders to exist, followers must exist. Leadership and followership are two sides of the same coin. And ultimately, success is determined by the quality of followership in any organization. This talk will look at the importance of followership and what you need to do to become a better follower even if you are a leader.
