Summary of Follow the Leader
The One Thing Great Leaders Have that Great Followers Want
To learn about leadership, don’t mimic leaders – study their followers.
Management consultant Emmanuel Gobillot defines leadership in terms of “followership.” He’s quite convincing about his unusual perspective as he teaches you how to develop charisma, emotional logic and “follower-resonant” leadership. Gobillot is an intelligent, thoughtful writer with valuable, iconoclastic notions about tactics, strategy, psychology and personal development and about their relationship to the essence of leadership. For fun, he ends each chapter with a handy, 140-character tweet. getAbstract recommends Gobillot’s insightful approach to current leaders, those who want to lead and those intrigued by the dynamics of leadership.

Comment on this summary
3 years ago"True leaders never push their followers: they pull them." People want to be led as they want a clear vision they can take ownership in ....So pull them or take them with you is great way to think about it. If you feel you have to push, think about why you are doing it and what you could do to engage them in a more inspiring manner. Great quick read.
