Followership

The Followership Member Community is dedicated to the development of knowledge, competencies, and programs concerning the leader-follower relationship. We focus on research, collaboration, and dissemination of ideas and information.

We are a passionate group of academics and practitioners looking to engage in conversations for all things followership! Whether you're completely new to this fascinating concept, or already have an interest, we'd love to hear from you and for you to join our community- please get in touch!
