This study aimed at identifying patterns of the followership styles and their relation to the leadership styles of academic leaders as perceived by faculty members in public and private universities in northern Jordan. The researchers used the descriptive correlation approach. The Kelley's scale was adopted for the followership styles, and stellar's leadership scale for leadership styles. The study instruments were administered to a stratified random sample of 304 faculty members at (Yarmouk, JUST, Al-Bayt, Philadelphia, Ajloun Private University, Jerash Private University and Irbid Private University). The validity and reliability of the study tools have been verified. Chi-Square Goodness of Fit was employed to compare the expected with the observed distribution of frequencies. The results showed that the Exemplary followership type was the highest observed, followed by the pragmatic pattern and finally the Alienated and the Passive pattern. The results showed that the most prevalent leadership styles are the empowering, democratic, and autocratic. Study results also showed that there were no statistically significant differences between the leadership and the followership styles.
