Followership: The Four Secret Skills of Being the Leader Others WANT to Follow

2014 Talent Management Conference
Workplace Application: Living the roles and secret skills of followership will deliver better results, get you promoted faster, and inspire those around you to do the same.

The best leaders began their journeys by developing strong followership skills. Business icons like Sam Walton, Malcolm Forbes, and P&G's A.G. Lafley practiced followership relentlessly as they progressed. Why? Because all leaders are also still a follower of someone to whom they are accountable. Mastering the four roles and secret skills of followership will ensure success in the paradoxically simultaneous roles of follower and leader. You will learn how easy it is to earn a reputation for strong leadership at every level by living the four roles and practicing the four secret skills of great followership; motivate others by setting a sterling example of leadership through their followership; and better manage your career by marketing & selling your own authentic 'accomplishment brand.'
