Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Good leaders understand that they have a responsibility to inspire the led through modeling good followership. This is a key trait in effective leading. Good followers are their own leaders, who understand the role of supporting the leader. Competent and effective followership, leadership, and collaboration skills are necessary in K-12 educational settings, including teachers, administrators, and other educational professionals. Effective followership skills are in line with cohesive organizations that stress collaboration skills. Understanding the relational skills of the leader/follower dynamic are important to developing teacher effectiveness, a positive school climate, workplace satisfaction, and improved student and teacher outcomes.
