Discuss the role of a follower. Why do you think so little emphasis is given to followership compared to leadership in organizations?
A good follower does not only obey a leader's command.
A follower's role is to observe rules, comply with instructions, manage tasks, and provide support for leaders to achieve objectives. Followers also manage their leaders by providing feedback and reports.
Leadership is often emphasized more than followership due to the notion that leaders have greater impact than followers. Leadership is also believed to entail a higher responsibility than followership, which is not necessarily true.
