Summary

The book draws upon various disciplines, from philosophy, to psychology and management, to education, to define and redefine followership and its variety of meanings. It looks at the practice and research that promotes positive followership and examines when and how followers fail to rise to the challenge of active constituency. It draws on multiple disciplines and explores the complex factors that push followers to acquiesce blindly to both good and bad leaders, as well as the intricacies of faulty leader-follower dynamics. Includes the latest research on followership and offers current and future perspectives on followers and the leader-follower relationship.
