How Leaders Create Followers

True followers are only created by a true leader. In simplistic terms " the manager chooses the right person for the right job", and the leader makes the chosen person happy doing the job allocated.
In business there are many guides as to how the first job can be done, but very few on how to do the second.
While leadership skills can be enhanced, they cannot be created. You can see this by examining your politicians, the true leaders truly serve their people not themselves. The true leaders stand out e.g. Nelson Mandela and Winston Churchill.

Effective Followers are Effective Leaders

An effective follower is most likely to emerge as an effective leader. Leadership and followership are dynamic human dimensions of management. A leader in one sphere of management may of necessity be a follower in another depending on the administrative structure of the organization. A leader who would efficiently create true followers must know the nitty gritty of followership and must have been true to the leaders he had served under. There is no fear in leadership if the occupant of the position had demonstrated submission, loyalty and commitment to the ideals of the organization under the leaders he had served as a follower. The principle is simply "as you lay your bed so shall you lie on it," or simply "whatever you sow, you shall reap." Pronto!
