On Followership: Seeing the Weight of Leadership | From the Green Notebook

By The Cove August 7, 2019

'If you look at the preponderance of articles online, they are about what leaders need to do to be better leaders. There should be more about what followers should do to be better followers as mission accomplishment is a two-way street.'

The Army exhorts us to all be better leaders, but how good are we at being led? In this post, via our friends and partners at From the Green NotebookJoe Byerly asks us to see leadership from the point of view of our leaders and try to be better followers. On Followership: Seeing the Weight of Leadership is a short but insightful post that encourages you to reflect on how good you are at supporting your leaders as a member of the profession of arms.
