Great leadership flows from good followers hip! If you are not a good follower, you won't make a good leader. Followers hip is not just a subordinate position- it is a stepping stone to leadership position. Good followers are those who support the leader when he /she is doing the right thing and speak up in a respectful way when things are going wrong. Good followers are able to get along with those of different personalities and perspectives, while not ignoring these differences. A leader must be able to manage people with different characteristics.
