Obligations of LeadersSlide15

People rise to your expectations, so increase your expectations of your members.Your organization is built upon a common purpose—use it to develop a sense of ownership.

The best leaders are humble—it is not about the leader; it is about the organization.

The most effective leaders create a culture of “effective followership

.”Slide16

Followership is a discipline of supporting leaders and helping them to lead well.

Followers are more important to leaders than leaders are to followers.

Barbara KellermanSlide21

In any organization, leaders can help develop effective followers, just as effective followers develop better leaders. The performance of followers, leaders, and the organization are variables that depend on one another.
