Leadership vs followship

To be an effective leader, one needs good follower.

Last week we had an introduction class for Leadership Excellence, i have learn and think about "Leadership".

In one section, we consider that a main challenge for leader is to recognize that followers are different substantialy in

talent and motivation. Nonetheless, i also question about follower. Robert E. Kelley shares four essential qualties of

effective followers: 1. Self-management, it means to think for oneself and to work well without close supervision.

2 Commitment - to commit something beyond themeself. 3. Competence and focus and the last one is Courage

which described as the critical thinker and fight for what they believe is right. After I have read then I soon realized that

perhaps I should start from being the good follower for the MBE class and simultaneously practicing leadership.
