JULY 31, 2020--> Below is the link for a new book on Followership written by Vincenzo Pellegrini. Thank you Mr. Vincenzo for reaching out to us and sharing the book for our followers from Italia or anyone who is literate in Italian language. The name of the book is "Servant Follower". The book is about the meaning of leadership/followers in private and public administration. Below is a short summary of the book provided by the author and the link for the book.

 

The link: https://www.amazon.it/dp/B0877B9QQ7/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_U_BOaeFbGT78JFZ

 

"This book was born from the idea that leaders and followers in the public and private sectors cannot coincide.
So if in private we have the leader and the follower, in the public we must have the servant leader (president of the republic, parliament, mayor, etc.) and the servant follower (all those people who work for the various public ministries)" Vincenzo Pellegrini

 

 

Please feel free to contact us ( Abdurrahim Hocagil ) if you have a Followership article, publication, presentation, podcast, or dissertation that can be added to the site.

RECENTLY PUBLISHED BOOKS ON FOLLOWERSHIP

 

Zoogah, B., David, Theoretical Perspectives of Strategic Followership Routledge, 2018

 


 

The concept of followership, like leadership, is not new to the extent that it has been around since the beginning of creation. It is so pervasive in human interactions that attempts to study it are often met with ridicule. In the organization literature, followership, a complementary role to leadership, was often ignored until recently when scholars observed that followers have as much a role to play in the leader-follower relationship. Theoretical Perspectives of Strategic Followership focuses on one type of followership – strategic – which is an emergent phenomenon. Similar to leadership, followership has been defined as a role, process, and capacity. Indeed, others consider it as socially constructed. In addition to the definitions, the relatively sparse literature has identified antecedents, outcomes, and moderators of followership. 

The book combines both the macro (strategic management) and micro (psychological) foundations of strategic followership to encourage research not only among strategic management scholars but also those in the micro fields of organizational behaviour, human resources management, and industrial psychology.

Fisher, D. Paul New Giants Rising: How Leaders Can Help People and Companies Grow During the Followership Crisis Routledge, 2018 

 


 

The greatest concern for all Americans today - leaders and followers alike – is how their prosperity seems to depend on a shrinking foundation of technology-only growth. And the onset of artificial intelligence only threatens to marginalize people even more with job loss and increasing isolation inside the few remaining jobs that it will leave behind.

This book helps us understand that business growth fueled by labor productivity does not rely on leadership as we’ve come to celebrate it, but on our ability to sustain loyalty and commitment to one another– a following if you will - inside and outside our workplaces. When we recognize and understand our historical Followership Cycles, we can begin to restore our workplaces to their lost role as a place to meet the demand of all Americans for a better future.

This illuminating book:

 

  • Provides a new, sustainable growth model based in the socioeconomic realities of modern America and the world it wants to lead – a new Followership System.

 

 

  • Tells the story of how one profession, on the brink of disappearing into irrelevance, will lead the new Decision Economy into the 21st century. 

 

 

  • Demonstrates the development of the "leaderless" specialists who will manage evidence together to pursue a Reason-to-Grow.

 

 

  • Stresses the importance of charging all C-Suite executives with leading a continuous process of discovering, articulating and then defending those stakeholder agreements to share purpose.

 

 

  • Reveals, not the technology infrastructure, but the social architecture that organizations will use to build new social capital – the Followership that will propel our New Giants to future greatness.

 

 

New Giants Rising takes us on a journey of the Followership Cycles of our recent past. And, more importantly, it puts forth a plan of action - voiced very simply by Henry Ford during the last cycle over a century ago when he faced the same moment then as we do now: "Coming Together is the Start. Keeping Together is Progress. Working Together is Success."

Buford, A. Maurice Bold Followership: A Biblical Cure for Organizational Toxicity Springer, 2018

 


 

This book uses biblical writings to examine how to build wise and moral boardroom boldness to mitigate executive ethical mishaps. The author uses the story of King David to explore the possible perplexities followers experience when their leaders suddenly make a toxic choice. Introducing a boardroom boldness language model (BBLM), Buford presents five boardroom languages to use when dealing with toxic leaders. How well organizations brace, respond, and proactively navigate the uncharted terrain of uncertainty could play a pivotal role in the success of the firm. Calling into question traditional constructs affiliated with power and trust, this book will advance the greater discussion by integrating spirituality, case studies, and leadership principles to measure the culture to cultivate boardroom boldness.

Chatvani, Neva Distributed Leadership: The Dynamics of Balancing Leadership with Followership Springer, 2017

 



 

Addressing the area of shared leadership, also known as collective or distributed leadership, this edited book embraces the underlying idea that leadership is a dynamic process that intersects closely with followership. While some authors present rigorously researched qualitative and quantitative case studies that investigate the dynamics of followership in distributive leadership in terms of collective decision-making, leadership identity, roles and demographic composition of groups in a variety of settings, other authors take a critical look at distributed leadership models by viewing them through the lens of nature and ecosystems as well as human development processes. The chapters aim to inspire readers to challenge the current definition of leadership and explore more inclusive and holistic paradigms. Distributed Leadership provides a comprehensive and constructive contribution to the field of leadership and will be an essential read for academics and scholar-practitioners interested in business management.

 

 

Davis, J., Crystal Servant Leadership and Followership: Examining the Impact on Workplace Behavior Springer, 2017

 

 


 

Providing a deeper understanding of leadership, followership theory, and the follower as servant leader, this book provides employee and follower perspectives of servant leadership in the workplace. The collection brings together both empirical and conceptual research from around the globe to illustrate how the leader is seen through the lens of the follower. Topics discussed include organizational performance, empowerment, competency models, diversity in the workplace, and social roles and stereotypes. With contributions from a range of skilled authors, Servant Leadership and Followership not only provides an overview of servant leadership, but also offers insightful ways for organizations to adapt and progress in line with the shifting moral demands of today’s workplace.

Balwind, J. Norman Winning at Following: Secrets to Success in Supporting Roles, Praeger Publishing, 2017

 


 

 

Replete with engaging stories and written in a down-to-earth style, this book provides the first and only road map for finding success and happiness in life's most common yet underrated role―that of the follower.

What kinds of behaviors and responses do most bosses want from those they lead? Which jobs seem desirable and exciting but present work conditions in which followers are likely to fail or be unhappy? What's the best way to communicate bad and good news to a superior? Winning at Following: Secrets to Success in Supporting Roles answers these questions and covers many more topics that are highly relevant to everyone, for those who report to others as well as for managers, directors, CEOs, or other acting leaders. Individuals who are satisfied in their roles as followers will discover information that helps them to optimize their success and fulfillment at work, while dissatisfied followers―anyone struggling as a follower and searching for directions for positive change―will find this book extremely valuable as a road map to greater meaning, success, and satisfaction at work and in life.

 

Readers will gain the critical direction and tools for fulfillment in their roles as followers―in whatever capacity that may be―and understand what they need to do to please their superiors as well as to solve the common problems and challenges that followers face. The book also explains how individuals can identify their followership style and discover the types of organizations where they are most likely to thrive. The final chapter provides guidance on how to overcome common, serious problems that followers experience, such as micromanaging bosses, sexual harassment, unethical directives from superiors, and disrespectful colleagues.


• Provides invaluable advice and direction that applies to everyone, regardless of position in an organization's hierarchy, because everyone is a follower in at least one role in his or her life

• Identifies the ideal qualities and behaviors of followers based on a comprehensive review of the research on followership and spotlights what to look for in jobs in order to maximize job satisfaction

• Examines what are likely to be the best and worst jobs for followers in terms of their sense of satisfaction and fulfillment in that occupation

ILA 2017 Brussels: panel on global followership

 

Friends,

I would like to invite our community to join me in the conversation on global followership. I initiated the conversation in my publication that appeared in Advances in Global Leadership last year (Tolstikov-Mast, Y. (2016). Global followership: The launch of the scholarly journey. Advances in Global Leadership, 9, 109-150). ILA 2017, with its call to address current turbulent context, is an exciting opportunity to review influence of that context on global followership trends and dynamics. 

Followers across the world experience turbulent times: recent social movements in the USA, followership behavior associate with Brexit, record high world popularity of the current Catholic Pope, Pope Francis, world dominance of Apple technology (global workforce and global users). Those are just a few examples of interconnected global events and environments that influence followers' behavior, roles, identities, and relationship with leaders.       

I would like to assemble a panel that focuses on intercultural, cross-cultural, as well as global aspects of followership. Scholarly work in progress, including theoretical developments as well as research ideas, will introduce ILA audience to a new outlook on followership and provide a needed discussion forum.

Please send your correspondence and suggestions directly to my email address by January 25th to give enough time for a panel submission.

Sincerely,

Yulia

While leadership scholars increasingly acknowledge the influence of followers in the leadership process, less attention has been paid to their role in the destructive leadership process. Specifically, the current debate lacks a broad-based understanding of different susceptible follower types that synthesizes related research across academic domains. Expanding on Padilla, Hogan, and Kaiser's (2007) toxic triangle model of destructive leadership, we integrate research and theory across various academic literatures to derive a cohesive taxonomy of vulnerable followers that we call the susceptible circle. We describe the core characteristics of each follower type, drawing on Barbuto's (2000) theory of follower compliance to highlight the psychological processes that motivate each follower to comply with destructive leaders. We then conclude by discussing theoretical and practical implications, as well as avenues for future research.

NEW DISSERTATIONS ON FOLLOWERSHIP

 

We in the Followership Learning Community are encouraged by the continuing stream of dissertations completed on aspects of Followership, thereby building our base of validated knowledge.

 

Adair, Rodger (2013). Northcentral University. Home Versus Work: Perceptual Effects of Life Threatening Illnesses on Leader/Follower Relationships  (Doctoral dissertation).       

This was a phenomenological study of how family stress was perceived within the workplace as explained through work-life studies.  In this study, the question was how does the presence of a significant emotional event within a follower’s family influence the leader/follower exchange relationship within the workplace?  The follower’s child had been diagnosed with a life threatening illness. The problem identified was trauma that involved the life-threatening illness of a child that disrupted work-family balance and created a disruption in LMX relationships within the workplace.  From this phenomenological study emerged four invariant themes: a loss of trust, a new rapport, a change in support, and a shift in priorities.  Leaders need to effectively exhibit family supportive behaviors such as: emotional support, instrumental support, role modeling behaviors, and establish creative work-family management (Hammer et al., 2009).

 

 

Vondey, Michelle "Followership: How followers understand what it means to follow." Regent University: 2012

A follower-centered perspective on followership is missing in many discussions on leadership. This gap is unfortunate because only by understanding followers can researchers and practitioners fully address the leader–follower relationship. The purpose of this study is to give a voice to followers; allow them to describe what it means to be a follower; and, from their self-understanding, develop an accurate and clear definition of followership. Framing this research are (a) the self-concept, (b) identity theory, and (c) social identity theory. Because the overarching questions guiding this study represent a search for meaning (i.e., what a follower is and what followership is), a phenomenological approach was taken for collecting and analyzing data. Thirty-four working individuals in various industries were asked to share what it means to be a follower. This study used face-to-face and telephone interviews to explore how individuals experience followership. The results showed that about half the participants hold a follower self-concept. In addition, the follower self-concept was distinguishable at the individual, relational, and collective levels. Participants identified 21 behaviors and characteristics that could be considered prototypical of followers. Finally, this study offers a definition of followership from the follower’s perspective.

Muhlenbeck, Liz "Following After Hope: An Examination of the Relationship Between the Goal-Directed Affects of Hope and the Dimensions of Courageous Followership as Measured in the Healthcare Industry." Regent University: 2012

Followership is an emerging trend in the leadership literature. This study gives a general description of follower behaviors with a specific emphasis on courageous followership. Utilizing an online survey, this study collected data from professionals in the healthcare industry. A Pearson product-moment correlation analysis was conducted, which showed a positive and significant relationship between the five courageous follower behaviors of service, responsibility, challenge, transformation, and moral action, and the psychodynamic element of hope. Post hoc tests revealed that organizational level did have an impact on hope, most notably at the middle manager level. This study is the first of its kind to expand on the growing body of followership research while integrating aspects of positive psychology. The results of this study will be valuable in designing effective interventions where leader-follower relationships are challenged in the quest to achieve the organization's purpose.

Schindler, James "Followership as Perceived in the Hospitality Industry." Walden University, 2012 (pdf)

The problem addressed in this study is the lack of knowledge midlevel hospitality managers displayed concerning the importance of the followership traits that translate to good leadership skills.  The purpose of the qualitative phenomenological study was to explore the phenomenon of followership traits that translate to good leadership skills.  The central research questions were designed to explore the lived experiences and informed perceptions of midlevel managers in the hospitality industry regarding the followership traits that translate to leadership skills.  The lived experiences of midlevel hospitality managers relating to leadership and followership traits were the conceptual framework of the study.

Powerful Video By Singapore Defense Force on Followership 

 

Over the last ten years there have been a number of indications that the ideas found in The Power of Followership and The Courageous Follower have found their way into the Singapore military. This video,which places the onus of ethical followership onto every member of the Defence Forces, is a milestone in the field of Followership. If every military around the world sensitized its soldiers to their responsibility not to follower illegal and inhumane orders, the world would be a different place. For an additional example of research from Singapore about followership and the military, see Elijah Xun Ming Wee's "Dynamic Followership" (2008).

 

 

Important Early Article on Followership Discovered And Available Here

 

"My co-administrator, Elisabeth Higgins Null, recently discovered the following major article on Followership published in 1982, even earlier than Robert Kelley's seminal Harvard Business Review article "In Praise of Followers" published in 1988. For anyone with a strong interest in Followership, I suggest that this is a "must read". In addition to early statements of principles found in my own book and elsewhere, there are some unique and even provocative insights that I have not seen stated in other works on the relations of leadership and followership. ~ Ira Chaleff

RESEARCH QUERY: RESISTANCE TO TOXIC AUTHORITY

 

Abby Yanow, an Organizational Development consultant and executive coach who taught "Facing History and Ourselves: the Holocaust and Human Behavior" at Tufts University, alerts  the Followership Learning Community to the work of Nehama Tec which highlights the traits of those who rescued Jews threatened by the Holocaust. Yanow summarizes six traits Tec identified as shared by altruistic, gentile rescuers:

 

Individuality or separateness, an inability to blend into their social environments;
Independence or self-reliance, a willingness to act in accordance with personal convictions, regardless of how these are viewed by others;
An enduring commitment to stand up for the helpless and needy reflected in a long history of doing good deeds;
A tendency to perceive aid to Jews in a matter-of-fact, unassuming way, as neither heroic nor extraordinary;
An unplanned, unpremeditated beginning of Jewish rescue, a beginning that happened gradually or suddenly, even impulsively
Universalistic perceptions of Jews that defined them, not as Jews, but as helpless beings and as totally dependent on the protection of others

 

It is  crucial that we understand more about what enables those who do not follow toxic leaders or destructive orders to take a stand. Relating this to Milgram’s work, we know that two thirds of people will follow the orders of authority even when they feel them to be destructive,  and they are not under duress to do so. There is an absence of data about what is different about the other third. Yet this is the most important aspect for us to understand if we are to encourage and develop those characteristics. This is so important that it would be worth trying to find who else is examining this aspect of followership behaviors and creating a working group around this topic. -- Ira Chaleff

Dineen, Tristan  Moral Followership and Modern Tyranny:  The Followers of Adolf Hitler and Saddam Hussein
VDM Verlag Dr. Müller (2011-05-09)

 

 

                                                                                                         

 

 

 

This thesis is an investigation of the role of morality in motivating the followers of 20th century tyrannies. Karl Popper argued that what interested him about modern tyrants was that they all possessed huge followings of dedicated followers who ascribed to the tyrant's “moral message”. Like the dedicated followers of any cause they believed that what they were supporting was morally righteous. The focus of this study is the often neglected followers of two such 20th century tyrants – Adolf Hitler and Saddam Hussein – and why they came to view these “evil” men as the righteous saviours of their respective peoples and lands. Concluding that in circumstances where a segment of the human race becomes estranged, in moral terms, from the rest of humanity, it becomes perfectly normal for people to commit evil against those deemed to be “outsiders” in the name of good. Such alienated moral environments facilitate a moral faith in tyranny.

 

 “It is as important to study the dark side of followership as it is to study the dark side of leadership. While it is our hope that courageous followership corrects or disempowers destructive leadership, sometimes followership enables destructive leadership. The newly published book below appears to be investigating this dynamic. I hope it makes an important contribution to our understanding of the dark side of following.” Ira Chaleff

 

Collinson, David, Keith Grint, and Brad jackson Leadership  (4 volumes) Sage (Sage Library in Business and Management series): 2011 

 

One of the important contributors to the book “The Art of Followership”, David Collinson of Lancashire University, has co-edited an important new four volume series on leadership that embraces the leader-follower relations. He describes the project as: “A move away from the early focus almost exclusively on leaders themselves – their particular styles, qualities and contributions – towards seeing leadership in terms of the dynamic relationship between leaders and followers.”

" 'Follow to Lead' shows that the key to becoming a great leader is by first becoming a great follower. Mastering the 7 Principles to become a great follower is easy. The book simplifies and condenses volumes of study into a brief, tangible format." Adrian Johnson, Kalamazoo Gazette

 

"Imaginative people are the life-blood of the organization. Some have the gift of strategic vision which will serve the organization well as it looks to the future. Some have the gift to see a better way of accomplishing a single task. Still others have the gift to implement the vision. The key for an organizational team is to integrate the individual members' gifts." -- Don Mercer

 

Hollander, Edwin P. Inclusive Leadership: The Essential Leader-Follower Relationship Routledge Academic, 2008

 

 

Inclusive Leadership is a process of active followership emphasizing follower needs and expectations, with the guiding principle of "Doing things with people, not to people," in a two-way influence relationship. While the author focuses on leadership side of leader- follower relations, this book presents many topics and insights of interest to followers,

 

Ricketson, Rusty Follower First: Rethinking Leading In the Church. Heartworks Publications, 2010

 

  

" Follower First explores the most serious lay literature on follower-leader relations and examines its application in a profoundly Christian context. Professor Ricketson adds significant spiritual insights to these models and offers corollaries for practice of the leader and follower roles within committed Christian communities. Undoubtedly, people of faith will be touched by the wisdom and at least some will be called to engage in deep personal and communal transformation." — Ira Chaleff

Chaleff Ira The Courageous Follower: Standing Up To & For Our Leaders

 

In conjunction with the Third Edition of The Courageous Follower, Ira Chaleff is now offering an online, reflective self-assessment test for personal and professional growth and development. It is now available online from Berrett-Koehler’s website.

 

Also: Announcing an updated 3rd Edition by Ira Chaleff:

 

 

 

 

The updated third edition of Ira Chaleff's classic text on Followership, The Courageous Follower (Berrett Koehler: 1995, 2003, 2009) includes a new chapter, “The Courage to Speak to the Hierarchy.” Much of Chaleff’s model is based on followers having access to the leader. But today, followers can be handed questionable policies and orders that come from many levels above them—even from the other side of the world. Chaleff explores how they can respond effectively, particularly using the power now available through advances in communications technology. The book is available at Amazon in print and for Kindle. It can also be ordered in print or as an e-book directly through the publisher, Berrett-Koehler.

Robert M. Wachter and Kaveh Shojania's Internal Bleeding:The Truth Behind America's Terrifying Epidemic of Medical Mistakes

(Rugged Land, 2005) looks at the failures of communication under pressure within today's hospitals, where a small mistake can result in death or serious injury. What makes this book valuable to those in both leader and follower roles, particularly in the health field, is its weath of suggestions for improving the flow of information and procedures. The authors, both medical doctors, have written a book as compelling as a novel. As such, it can be read and understood by general readers.--Elisabeth Higgins Null

Fine, Allison, "Free Agents and Followership," The Forum Society For International Development, n.d.  

Social media channels like Facebook and Twitter are fundamentally reshaping protests and protesters. They are pointillist paintings, with thousands of individuals doing small bits that add up to a whole visible only from a distance. There are no Nelson Mandalas or Lech Walesas speaking on behalf of protestors. However, social networks aren’t leaderless, as critics say, but leader-full with individuals defining their own roles, uploading videos, posting news without being asked or tasked or targeted. There are no party platforms or constitutions, no press releases and pension funds, none of the suffocating trappings of modern organizational life to slow down and suffocate a movement. There are just free agents sharing their own stories and connecting with one another.

This article focuses on the benefits of mentoring and more specifically, e-mentoring versus discipling. In a mentoring relationship, the mentor seeks to assist the mentee to achieve individual goals and realize professional dreams and visions, while a leader in a discipling relationship seeks to assimilate the disciple to become just like the leader. A discipling relationship lacks development beyond the leaders’ capacity. A mentoring relationship stimulates growth and enhances individuality on the part of the mentee. For today’s ever changing global world and economy, along with technological advances, e-mentoring provides mentoring in a less complicated, but highly effective manner.

Hurwitz, Marc "What's Missing From Your Leadership Development Program: Followership!" (webinar) ASTD, July 3, 2012, 2:00-3:00 pm EDT (upcoming). You have a leadership development program because training leaders makes organizations work better; strong, competent leadership is a key to why companies flourish. To keep the leadership pipeline flowing, you look to recruit and retain the best leaders, and develop a robust internal talent pipeline: your farm team. So why do companies lose many of their highest potential and most promising leaders? What is the number one reason new executives fail? Why is 2-way communication only half the story? What crucial ability underpins employee effectiveness? How can executives coach and mentor this ability? And what can you do to significantly improve your leadership training tomorrow? The answer to all these questions is followership. This thought-provoking webinar is based on eight years research and experience bringing followership into organizations across North America. We will explore the role of followership in leadership, its role in organizational success, its role in personal success, how followership is critical to role clarity and engagement, and what it means for communications.

"In any partnership - leader-follower, peer-peer, business partners, spouses, etc. - each partner is accountable for initiating communications and responding to the other person's communications through active listening and feedback. In other words, each partner has two distinct communication roles: two partners with two roles each = four-way communication.  It takes deliberate effort and continual development by both partners to make a dialog four-way, but the payoff is tremendous.

While leadership scholars increasingly acknowledge the influence of followers in the leadership process, less attention has been paid to their role in the destructive leadership process. Specifically, the current debate lacks a broad-based understanding of different susceptible follower types that synthesizes related research across academic domains. Expanding on Padilla, Hogan, and Kaiser's (2007) toxic triangle model of destructive leadership, we integrate research and theory across various academic literatures to derive a cohesive taxonomy of vulnerable followers that we call the susceptible circle. We describe the core characteristics of each follower type, drawing on Barbuto's (2000) theory of follower compliance to highlight the psychological processes that motivate each follower to comply with destructive leaders. We then conclude by discussing theoretical and practical implications, as well as avenues for future research.

Shondrick, Sara J.  and Robert G. Lord "Implicit leadership and followership theories: Dynamic structures for leadership perceptions, memory, and leader follower processes."   International review of industrial and organizational psychology vol 25 (2010)

 "In this review, we address implicit leadership theories (ILTs) and implicit followership theories (IFTs). Both types of implicit theories are important because leadership and followership are dynamic, socially constructed processes (Meindl, 1995) in which a leader's perceptions of followers are as critical as followers' perceptions of leadership. Both types of perceptions elicit confirming responses from the person being perceived, helping to create a dynamic leadership process in which relatively stable social structures emerge over time as leader and follower roles become differentiated. ILTs (and IFTs), which are a fundamental part of this process, are also dynamic in that they can be tuned automatically to particular contexts (Lord, Brown, and Harvey, 2001). In this dynamic process, both parties use their implicit theories to make sense of and react to the other party's behavior, creating an evolving basis for further interaction. In this sense, leadership is an ongoing, dynamic, two-way exchange between leaders and followers that is structured by both parties' implicit theories. ... Within this chapter, we discuss three broad areas of research that emphasize perceptual processes that are central to this dynamic leadership process. First, we consider research on the social construction of leadership and followership, specifically focusing on how dynamic leadership-oriented schemas influence both cognition and action. Next, we review research on behavioral measurement and sensemaking, highlighting how followers' cognitive and emotional processes color their interpretation and ratings of leadership behavior. Finally, we conclude by taking a closer look at perceptual and memory processes and the nature of knowledge while developing a more integrative perspective. Thus, one major contribution of our review is to provide an integrated theoretical perspective in which both leadership and followership can be understood by incorporating the cognitive and affective structures that guide the perceptions and reactions of both leaders and followers. This approach facilitates our understanding of the follower's role in leadership processes because we can generalize many of the findings derived from the extensive research on follower's perceptions of leaders to our emerging understanding of how followers are perceived."

 

Agho, Augustine O.. " Perspectives of Senior-Level Executives on Effective Followership and Leadership. Journal of Leadership & Organizational Studies, vol 16, no.2. Nov. 2009

Using a three-page questionnaire administered to a sample of 302 senior-level executives, this study examined the perceptions of executives on the distinguishing characteristics of effective leaders and followers. Most of the characteristics associated with effective leaders were perceived to be different from those associated with effective followers. A significant number of the respondents agreed that (a) leadership and followership are interrelated roles; (b) leadership and followership skills have to be learned; (c) effective leaders and effective followers can influence work performance, quality of work output, satisfaction and morale, and cohesiveness of work groups; and (d) researchers have not devoted enough attention to the study of followership.

 

 

Okantey, Peter Carlos "Mentoring and Discipling in the Leader/Follower Relationship," The Okantey Group Inc.; Naa Amerley Palm Education (NAPE) Foundation, 2012

This article focuses on the benefits of mentoring and more specifically, e-mentoring versus discipling. In a mentoring relationship, the mentor seeks to assist the mentee to achieve individual goals and realize professional dreams and visions, while a leader in a discipling relationship seeks to assimilate the disciple to become just like the leader. A discipling relationship lacks development beyond the leaders’ capacity. A mentoring relationship stimulates growth and enhances individuality on the part of the mentee. For today’s ever changing global world and economy, along with technological advances, e-mentoring provides mentoring in a less complicated, but highly effective manner.

 

Chang, I-Wen "Leader Follower: Throwing Out Gender Roles in Taiwanese Salsa Today," Thinking Gender Papers, UCLA Center for the Study of Women, UC Los Angeles (04/18/2012)

Salsa is a transnational and transcultural dance form that has traveled from the Americas to many other countries where it has taken on diverse meanings among its participants. In the past five years, it has become a craze among young professionals in Taiwan. In this paper, I argue that the notion of "flow" in salsa practice, the Confucian discipline of the female body, and the economic accessibility of salsa in Taiwan are contextual elements without which it is impossible to situate its social meaning. In the Taiwanese salsa scene, not only do female salsa practitioners gain agency and assert their power to challenge traditional values, but male salsa practitioners also find a space to perform femininity and to enjoy their embodiment of the female role.  
There are two imperatives for this study: 1) to subvert the dominant notion in academia about the immobile gender rules at play in salsa; 2) to illustrate the diversity of salsa practices around the world using Taiwan as a case study where it has not yet been discussed in the growing scholarship on Asian performance.

 

 

Robinson, Anthony B. "How to follow the leader:Five habits of healthy congregations." Christian Century. Jan 05, 2012

". . . leadership is not mainly an office, title or position; it is a function, and it can be a dangerous one...  You may have a passionate conviction about a project or the future and want people to share it, but when you tell them something they don't want to hear but need to hear, they may see only what they have to lose and not what they stand to gain. Leadership is necessary for the health and vitality of congregations, and it is tough, challenging work. A leader can't do this work unless there are followers who respond to the leadership and are willing to take some risks."

"In many effective organizations, the relationship between a leader and her or his followers is best described as a partnership in which the initiatives of followers are just as important as those of their leaders. Partnership is not essential in all circumstances; but, where market demands are greatest and results are created or improved through the intellectual efforts of employees, followers must be partners. Two elements of organizational culture are important in developing partnership. The first is the drive for performance and the second is a commitment to effective relationships."

Author's abstract:

We investigated how leaders' gender interacts with anger and sadness expression and followers' attributions for their emotional expression on evaluations made by followers. In a laboratory study concerning hypothetical leaders, people evaluated the competence of male and female leaders differently depending on their emotional displays (anger vs. sadness). These differences were observed only when observers made high dispositional attributions for leaders' emotional expression. Perceived leader role-based emotional expression mediated these relationships. In a field study concerning actual leaders, dispositional attributions for sadness and anger expression were negatively related to follower perceptions of the leader, and these attributions moderated the relationships between leader gender and various follower perceptions of the leader. Leader prototype fit mediated these relationships. We discuss the implications of these findings for leadership research and practice.

Control-related behaviors are an important attribute in leadership jobs, but do leaders appreciate being surrounded by followers with controlling personalities? Building on the self-enhancement and self-efficacy theories, we propose that leaders with high self-assessed control give better performance evaluations to subordinates who are also high in control. In contrast, leaders with low self-assessed control are quite reserved about the performance of subordinates high in control. We also propose that overall, leaders high in control evaluate more positively their followers’ performance than leaders low in control. We suggest that this difference is magnified if the leader-follower dyad is inconsistent with social norms related to age and hierarchical level. The results obtained by using polynomial regression and response surface techniques to analyze a sample of 138 leader-follower dyads supported our hypotheses showing a bias rooted in leaders’ self-assessed control. We conclude by deriving the theoretical and practical implications of these findings.

This paper examines the four cornerstones of African centered leadership-followership (ACL-F), an ethnic group specific approach to leadership devised for African people in 2000 at the Kwame Ture Leadership Institute by Dr. Uhuru Hotep. ACL-F  in the American context seeks to restore Black sovereignty in political, economic and cultural terms by incorporating African American and classical African socio-political ideals, values, practices and institutions. Finding inspiration and example in the village building traditions of the Maroons and the Exodusters, ACL-F seeks the restoration of sovereignty and Maat thru the installation of Sankofa and the Johari Sita in African American affairs. As a synthesizing project, ACL-F draws from both the W.E.B. DuBois (DuBoisian) and the Booker T. Washington (Washingtonian) schools of leadership.

 By definition followers must be involved in order for the act of leadership to occur. In fact, “leaders can only lead when enabled by followers to do so”. Despite the importance of the role of followers, much more attention has been given to the study of leadership than followership. This article examines several different views of followers. Through the use of the lens of Umwelt, how environments are seen and understood idiosyncratically by different people, I will examine four different perspectives of followership; positional, power-based, situational and as partners. The context provided in each of these four areas will provide readers with a means to assess and identify unique views of followership and understand their practice and implications

With the development of tighter controls on school decision making through a centralised curriculum, accompanied by the ongoing threats of a punitive accountability regime, the traits of creativity, risk taking and entrepreneurialism, evident and encouraged in the school leaders in the past, have been devalued by successive systemic administrations that value compliance over entrepreneurial leadership. A subtle program of eugenics is exorcising leadership, as the faceless bureaucrats reassert control in schools. As a result among school principals there is a developing fear of freedom.

Many adolescents voluntarily follow peer leaders who influence them to engage in antisocial and unhealthy behavior such as illegal acts and substance abuse. If professionals understood the adolescent followership phenomenon, they would be able to focus energy toward youth who are likely candidates to be peer leaders. Self-determination theory suggests adolescents are more likely to follow peer leaders who afford them autonomy to choose, an avenue for relatedness with the leader and other members of their group, and a sense of competence for the task they are doing.

 Drawing upon proactive personality and person-environment fit literatures, we examine the congruence effect of leader’s and follower’s proactive personality on leader-member exchange (LMX) quality, which in turn influences follower’s job satisfaction, affective commitment, and job performance. Results of cross-level polynomial regressions on 165 dyads supported the congruence effect hypothesis. Further, asymmetrical incongruence effects were found such that followers had lower-quality LMX and poorer work outcomes when their proactive personality was lower than the leader’s as compared with when their proactive personality was higher. These findings highlight the pivotal role played by leaders in promoting employee proactivity at work.

According to Gillis, the book posits that " while nobody wants workplaces to become havens of primitivism, we do seem happiest when our working environments echo facets of ancestral tribal life. So we enjoy a close-knit structure governed loosely by trusted elders in which every member is valued for his or her unique contribution to group living. That is why a high number of us crave more intimacy in the way we interact with our co-workers, bosses and civic leaders."  Gillis discusses “evolutionary leadership theory," as expounded by Selected.

Majundar, Somun  and Sharun Mukand "The Leader as Catalyst – on Leadership and the Mechanics of Institutional Change" 

(CESifo Working Paper No. 2337, June 2008, pdf download available)

 

Individual leaders have been central to the transformation of political institutions, organizations and many instances of social and economic reform. Why are some leaders able to take advantage of opportunities to successfully catalyze large-scale change while others fail? In this paper we argue that the key to understanding a leader’s effectiveness lies in dissecting the symbiotic nature of the leader-follower relationship. While the expected dynamism of a leader attracts followers, at the same time, followers empower the leader and contribute to his dynamism. This two-way leader-follower interaction can endogenously give rise to threshold effects: ‘small’ differences in leader ability can have a large impact on the degree of effective leadership and dramatically alter the prospects for change. The framework also naturally allows us to explore when individuals may deliberately prefer to follow an ambitious leader with very different preferences rather than a leader with more congruent preferences. Moreover, by empowering the self-interested ambitious leader, such followership may make him a more effective agent of (both good and bad) change.

Although leader–member exchange (LMX) research shows that leaders engage in different kinds of relationships with different followers, it remains somewhat of an enigma why one and the same relationship is often rated differently by a leader and the respective follower. We seek to fill that conceptual void by explaining when and why such LMX disagreement is likely to occur. To do so, we reconsider antecedents of LMX quality perceptions and outline how each party's LMX quality perception is primarily dependent on the perceived contributions of the other party, moderated by perceived own contributions. We then integrate the notion of Implicit Leadership and Followership Theories (ILTs and IFTs) to argue that the currencies of contributions differ between leaders and followers. This dyadic model sets the stage to explain that LMX disagreement can stem from (1) differences in both parties' ILTs as well as both parties' IFTs, but also from (2) differences in perceptions of own and other's behaviour. We conclude by discussing communication as a means of overcoming LMX disagreement and propose an array of potential studies along the lines of our conceptualization.

Leaders often seek the secret formula of leadership theory in their pursuit of effective organizational transformation. They desire a method that will aid them in efficiently moving their organization towards specified goals and objectives with the least amount of resistance. The goal of this paper is to address the leader-follower theory and its use in the transformational organization. This paper will address the attributes of humility and servant leadership and its contribution to the effectiveness of the leader-follower theory towards organizational transformation.

As a means of extending Fiedler's contingency model of leadership effectiveness to followership behavior, this study examined the relationship between followers' motivational disposition as measured by the least preferred co-worker scale, modified to refer to leaders (LPL), situational favorability as reflected in leader-member relations and follower experience, and followers' performance as measured by US Army enlisted efficiency report (EER). Participants were male, junior enlisted personnel serving with the US Army, Europe. The results indicated that in accordance with Fiedler, relations-oriented followers performed better in moderately favorable situations while task oriented followers performed better in highly unfavorable situations. In contrast to Fiedler, relations-oriented followers performed better in highly favorable conditions.

 

Cornelis Ilse; Alain Van Hiel; David De Cremer, "Birds of a feather: Leader-follower similarity and procedural fairness effects on cooperation,"  European Journal of Work and Organizational Psychology, 09 /19/10

Abstract: The present article examines to what extent leader-follower similarity moderates the effect of procedural justice on followers' cooperation. Using subjective operationalizations of similarity in a vignette study, a field study and an experimental lab study, we demonstrated that the enactment of fair procedures elicits the highest levels of cooperation when followers perceive the leader as similar. This was true when similarity was framed in broad, deep-level terms (Study 1 and 2) or in terms of a single, specific characteristic, i.e., the need to belong (Study 3). In the discussion we elaborate on possible explanatory mechanisms and on the broader context of an integrative approach to leadership research.

This study adopts a qualitative approach to deconstruct the meaning of followership. Interviews were conducted with employees in various industries to examine how individuals socially construct their roles as followers and to explore followership schemas and contextual influences that relate to these constructions. Results suggest that while some individuals socially construct definitions around passivity, deference and obedience, others emphasize the importance of constructively questioning and challenging their leaders. With regard to personal qualities that are thought to make followers effective, major themes such as obedience, expressing opinions, and taking initiative were found to be most disparate across different groups of followers. Results also revealed that contextual factors may affect both followership constructions and behavior in the follower role. These findings have important implications regarding a need to examine the construct of followership in leadership research, as well as raise interesting possibilities for advancing an “expanded” view of leadership in organizations

Vision communication is considered to be essential for leaders to mobilize followers, but knowledge of how and why vision communication may influence followers is scarce. We argue that visions may invite followers to create an ideal self (a desired image of the self). Subsequent consideration of this ideal self may motivate followers to make the ideal self (and thus the vision) reality. Furthermore, we propose that visions that focus on followers (by addressing followers personally and involving them in the vision) are more likely to lead to the creation of an ideal self and hence to higher follower performance than visions that do not focus on followers. Moreover, we argue that this effect is particularly strong for followers with a promotion self-regulatory focus, a focus on reaching ideals and ideal selves, because promotion focus causes sensitivity to the presence or absence of ideals (Higgins, 1987, 1996, 1997). The results of two experiments support our predictions.

Thanks for the great list of traits from Abby Yanow, I blogged about them here:

http://essentialdepree.org/post/4210078258/the-dark-side-of-corporate-culture-are-we-blending

also, not sure how to post this to the articles and such, but a brief essay I wrote on followership is here:

https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&pid=explorer&chrome=true&srcid=0B2b_z1x0PtsBY2MyODZhYjAtYzY3OS00ZTI3LWIwZTctZjVkYWQ1Y2JjMTk1&hl=en

Perhaps someone with more prowess than me could post it?

Thanks!

Much has been written about "followership" however, it seems mainly from the perspective of the follower, in other words the reason they follow, their style, personalities, and behaviour.
Maybe I have not looked in the right area?
In any case, I have put together a first draft of some key questions or statements that a leader could assess their proficiency of engaging followers.
My question is the following: Would there be an interest in the readers of this community to give the tool a trial and then provide their feedback?
I have re-grouped the questions or statements into four categories:
1. Communicating an engaging vision
2. Generating trust and inspiration
3. Aligning followers towards the vision
4. Inspiring and motivating followers to action
