SUMMARY
Leaders need the support of professionals to help them achieve organizational success. These followers, in turn, must cultivate specific aptitudes and skills to best work with leaders. Followers need leaders as well; moreover, in today’s world, everyone must have the skills to transition from followership to leadership roles and vice-versa.

“Followership” skills, like leadership skills, are often taken for granted, but they can and should be taught. This workshop introduces critical success factors for followers. Together we will:

1) Identify key attributes of effective followers
2) Assess individual followership style
3) Develop a personal improvement plan to cultivate "followership" and related professional skills, including fostering a mutually productive relationship with a supervisor and/or other managers
