Overview

"What are the characteristics of an effective leader? What leadership behaviors lead to success? What is the best leadership style?" These questions have been posed by countless scholars in an attempt to find the most effective leadership style. Though many books have been written on this topic, all have failed to include the traits of an effective follower. A Path to Leadership: The Heroic Follower details six traits of effective followers: purpose, responsibility, communication, flexibility, integrity, and sensitivity.

Palestini includes a checklist at the end of each chapter to help readers assess whether they have mastered the information and a 70-question survey to help readers assess whether they exhibit the six qualities of an effective follower.
