Everyone Has Habits

Yes, everyone has habits. Stephen Covey describes the habits of Leaders. Followers also have habits, but they are different.
Covey's work is based on an Inside-Out approach. We start with individual, then interpersonal >> organizational >> societal.
The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People focuses on the first 2 levels: Personal (individual) and Interpersonal (relationships with others). We learn how to proactively lead your own life and how to influence others.
Followers are people who may not realize they have the power to make choices. They are reactive and dependent on others. These are their habits.
Can a 7H leader follow another person's direction? Yes, but I prefer to use the concept of "alignment" rather than "followership". "I like where that person is heading. So I will make my choice to align with him/her, join the path and do what I can to realize the end goal."
