This updated edition of a modern classic on followership provides the keys to creating an environment in which leaders are vigorously supported in pursuing the organization’s mission and courageously confronted when their actions threaten the organization’s well-being.
For every leader there are dozens of followers who work closely with them. The Courageous Follower gives them the insights and tools needed to effectively partner with their leaders. It also speaks to leaders and their boards, offering essential guidance on how to foster a climate in which courageous followers are encouraged and heard.
The results it offers are nothing less than highly satisfying and productive working relationships, organizations that are saved from the consequences of serious mis-steps by leaders, and leaders whose careers are saved by honest and effective feedback from those who know them best.
