Welcome & Opening Remarks (Marc Hurwitz) and Embracing Leadership – Followership Interconnectedness (Augustine Agho)
-
Leadership and followership are generally considered to be separate and distinct endeavors, or that followership is a subset of leadership. This perspective undervalues the impact of effective followership on leadership and organizational effectiveness and performance. By recognizing the leadership-followership interconnectedness, researchers and leadership development experts will be able to make a business case for integrating followership in professional development programs and the evaluation of organizational and leadership performance
