Everybody talks about "leadership training" and how important it is to be a good manager and leader. The truth is that most of our time is spent as "followers" and nobody is ever trained to be an "effective follower". Even the Managing Director has to report to the Chairman and most people spend most of their day doing things that they were told to do - the only difference is that the higher you get the more of the work you can delegate!

Being an effective follower is different to being an effective leader but you need both skills for survival.
