Constructions of Following from a Relational Perspective: A Follower-Focused Study
Morris, Rachael
Journal of Leadership Education, v13 n4 spec iss p51-62 2014
The followership field remains overshadowed by the leadership field, with traditional assumptions attached to the "follower" concept further undervaluing the importance of progressive understandings of leadership. This paper considers following as a relational process and provides illustrative extracts from empirical research. Future areas for research are discussed, as well as the importance of incorporating followership into the leadership education agenda. [Paper presented at the International Leadership Association (ILA) Annual Global Conference (16th, San Diego, CA, USA, Oct. 30-Nov. 2, 2014).]
