The Art of Followship – How to be a great No. 2

Leadership can be a lonely place, particularly during tough times.

Trust must be earned everyday so that when it’s needed, your actions count. Good leaders need great followers. People that can have influence without authority. This was one of the key factors during LG’s winning campaign of the BT Global Challenge and we saw this in the England team during the 2003 Rugby World Cup. Conrad argues that instilling a culture of followship in your organisation is critical to success.
