Overview

Perspectives from The Art of Followership

"In many ways, great followership is harder than leadership. It has more dangers and fewer rewards, and it must routinely be exercised with much more subtlety. But great followership has never been more important." —Warren Bennis, Distinguished Professor, University of Southern California, and author, Leaders and On Becoming A Leader

"Thirty years ago, I wrote that 'one of the most serious failures in the study of leadership has been the bifurcation between the literature on leadership and the literature on followership.' Surely, I added, it was 'time that the two literatures be brought together.' I know of no work that faces this challenge so well as The Art of Followership. I expect it to be a landmark work in the complexities of the leader-follower dynamic." —James MacGregor Burns, Woodrow Wilson Professor (emeritus) at Williams College; author, Leadership; and senior editor, The Encyclopedia of Leadership

"The field of followership is still in its infancy. It is rare that people get a chance to build and shape a new area of inquiry. Collectively, we can grow the followership field so that it makes powerful contributions to society." —Robert E. Kelley, professor, Carnegie Mellon University, and author, The Power of Followership and In Praise of Followership

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Andy and Patty share indispensable insight to leaders of innovative change in their chapter, Effective Followship for Creativity and Innovation.” (ThinkAboutItHarder.com, 05/05/08)

The Art of Followership turn leadership book on their heads. As the authors argue, followership is more important now that it has ever been. (Consulting Magazine, 05/05/08)

The Art of Followership is actually quite different in presentation…. Some chapters are quite short; others describe individual programs as a springboard for talking about the phenomenon. But most are scholarly think-pieces that are quite conceptual. (Financial Executive, 05/01/2008)

"With contributions from leading scholars and practitioners, this book highlights the different model, perspectives, and meaning of followership." (T + D Magazine, 04/28)

"My long-time collaborator James MacGregor Burns, who wrote the forward in this book, deemed it is a ' landmark book in the complexities of the leader-follower dynamic. I agree." (TLC Newsletter, 04/2008)
