startrek560

Why do we use phrases like “if you’re not a leader, you’re a follower” and “be a leader, not a follower?” Why is being a follower so bad? Captain Kirk could never have boldly gone where no one had gone before without a team of talented, dedicated, and mindful individuals…or followers.

Read my Lead Change Group post Follow by Example for why I think we need to take back the term “follower,” how I think we should treat our followers, and what’s required to be an effective follower.
