Tough Act to Follow


One way to identify an effective leader in an organizational setting is by their follower-ship. Who is following them and what’s it like for followers to follow that leader? Even brilliant, accomplished and well-intentioned leaders get in their own way and become hard to follow. It can be related to who they become under the influence of chronic power stress. And it can be tempting to blame the difficulty on the followers, the terrain you’re crossing or some other external circumstances. But really, the solution starts with you.
